Co-founder

Taylor was the first investor to see the vision in Mirror and then led and helped syndicate my seed round back in 2016. He was an unwavering partner and vital in getting the company off the ground: from diving into the product, to providing early feedback, to just generally being a key thought partner throughout the life of the company.

Taylor was the earliest believer in Parsec when Chris and I were still formulating a thesis around using low latency streaming to expand access to content and software from anywhere. Early on, we struggled to find our strategy and path to success, but Taylor always believed in us, encouraged us, and found ways to support our business. Most importantly, Taylor was always there to support Chris and me in the most challenging situations offering personal coaching, mentorship, and advice.
