My name is Jani Taylor.
Born at an Army Base in Arizona:
Originally a $25.00 baby
I came with a $10.00 rebate!
That's cheaper than my dog!
Raised in Tooele, Utah.
2010 I joined the united states navy.
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
I went in "Undesignated". As a deck seaman, I worked alongside boatswain's mates. we worked and slept on the boat deck and near the flight deck, earning us the nickname "deck apes".
Many responsibilities included: steering USS BALLISTIC MISSILE DESTROYER USS "GRACE" HOPPER (DDG-70), FLIGHT OPERATIONS, FIRE DRILLS, VERTICAL REPLENISHMENT, MAN OVERBOARD, AFT LOOKOUT.

I dream of moving back someday..
..as a civilian.
2014-2016 I was called to served a full-time mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Mission.
Commonly referred to as Okla"HOMA", it truly is home.
I learned about many religions.
Having Military experience prior, helped me to connect with people.
Key to a Mission is open-mindedness.
While, I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I also believe every religion has truth to it as well..
and truth comes from god..
Though sworn at and spit on, I enjoyed my mission.
I miss the Catholic Priests praying for us to "find God" or the Baptists bible bashing us. Mostly though?
I miss the Food..
especially authentic Indian food made by a few OSU engineer students.
go Oklahoma cowboys!
My love of art grew very early when I picked up a crayon and scribbled Tigers eating ice cream.
Snow College gave me experience to grow as an Artist and push myself out of my comfort zone. Figure Drawing, Anatomy for Artists, Sculpture, Oil Painting, Animation; these classes are essential for learning the proportions and value of the human figure.
I have much to learn. However, I hope to contribute to the art community.
During the 2020 pandemic, I was offered a 3-month Marketing Internship with Instruction Studio, a company focused primarily on helping other companies with training. As part of my Internship, I helped design the Brand Guide for CEO of Instruction Studio, Kyle Cooper.
Experience at Instruction Studio led me to a new exciting opportunity with Digital Gravy Animation.

I had the Entrepenuar mindset and the motivation to be my own boss.

Live long and prosper!
