Taylor Headshot

Who is Taylor C. Bailey?

I'm an automation engineering supervisor at West Pharmaceutical Services, freelance videographer, and author of The Acacia Records (still working on that one). I also love to hunt, camp, mountain bike, and work on my house. This site is just a way to showcase what I'm working on as well as share some of my thoughts on various topics that interest me. Enjoy.

Professional Pursuits


I'm an automation engineering supervisor who's been in the medical device field since 2018. At home turning a wrench or programming machine vision, I can't get enough of automation. If your business has need of technical document writing or machine vision programming, feel free to reach out.


Your business needs video and I can help with that. Let me assist you with that product video, instructional/how-to, facility tour, or interview you've been thinking about recording.

Personal Endeavors

The Acacia Records

The Acacia Records is a second-world epic fantasy series. Volume 2, Weapons of Origin, is in draft 3.5 at 117k words and is out with Beta readers.

Automation & Authorship

Automation & Authorship is a show in the works where I bring on guests to talk engineering and writing. I'll include abbreviated show notes here with links to the podcast, as well as additional thoughts in the form of stand-alone articles. If you have something unique to say in either of these spaces, feel free to contact me about being a guest on the show!

Reading List

Reading has always played a huge role in my life, and finding a good book is like striking gold! I keep a record of all the books I read and mark the favorites, just for you!


Sometimes it's just nice to have a place to direct people for recommendations. See what entertainment, software, and products I recommend, for whatever that's worth to you.


Vöxtur is a podcast I co-hosted and edited with Nate Elliott. We interviewed "People of Growth," who are amazing people with interesting stories. While we discontinued the podcast in 2020, you can still listen to all 45 episodes here.
