Hi, my name is Taylor Strickland.
I am thirty-five years old, married to my lovely wife Elisa, and father to an 11 year old son and 7 year old daughter.  I am passionate about about music and media and pouring into the lives of young people to help them recognize their life's calling.  I received a degree in Mass Media from Valdosta State University in 2007, a Computer Repair Technical Certificate from Wiregrass Technical College in 2010, and a Masters Degree in Adult & Career Education from Valdosta State University in 2017, and several other career certifications over the years.  I believe that all labor yields profit and a person reaps what they sew; I believe everyone has a something to give and that we should each pursue our calling in life.  I operate my classroom by these philosophies.

Various forms of technologies will be highlighted to expose students to the emerging technologies impacting the Audio/Video Production world. Professional communication skills and practices, problem-solving, ethical and legal issues, and the impact of effective presentation skills are taught in this course as a foundational knowledge to prepare students to be college and career ready.
