About the Author / Illustrator
Chad Taylor is the founder of Rustic Trail Productions LLC. Chad has always had a passion for art in various forms and through his business he is able to share his vision with the world. Chad is a Jesus follower, Biblical researcher, entrepreneur, husband and father. Over the years he has been a business coach and public speaker as well.
He has spoken in front of crowds ranging from small rooms of people to an entire stadium with thousands of people. He prefers not to be the center of attention but is always grateful and willing to help others however he can. For the last handful of years Chad has had a strong desire to research the Bible and grow closer to Jesus.
Chad was born and raised in a small town in Northwest Montana. He grew up loving the outdoors, especially with his family. Over the years he has continued to grow his passion for the outdoors, mechanics, art, music and entrepreneurship.
His first business venture was in music production in 2005. The years since then have been an incredible journey that only God Himself could have orchestrated. They were years filled with both frustration and success. Years of seeking out mentorship and wisdom. Years of humbling himself to learn from people that had good fruit on their tree. Years of doing what most people were unwilling to do so he could achieve what most people never will.
God has placed some incredible people in Chad's life that have been essential to his growth. Countless examples have shown Chad that you don't have to accept being mediocre, you don't have to accept being a victim and your comfort zone is your failure zone.
He has had many examples of what a Jesus follower looks like, what a husband looks like, what a dad looks like, what a business owner looks like and how to treat those around him. From the parents that raised him to the people he meets every day, Chad knows there is something to learn from everyone.
Chad is happily married, has a son and is looking forward to future kids as well. He and his family currently live in Seattle, Washington.
