My Resume

Taylor Jolin is a Technology Solutions Consultant with over 15 years of experience in the technology field. He has been a consultant for his own company, Jolin Consulting, for almost eight years with his primary focus being network design and security.

Taylor began his career in technology in 2004 by enlisting in the U.S. Air Force. In 2007, Taylor transitioned to the U.S. Army and served as a Signal Support Systems Specialist until 2013, when he was medically separated from the military.
