our story Since 2016, Theatre Corner has dedicated itself to promoting diversity and inclusion in the national theater scene. Beginning as a print series in San Diego’s Voice & Viewpoint newspaper, Theatre Corner quickly evolved into an online video series, publishing episodes across multiple platforms. Episodes consist of interviews with local and celebrity talent, ranging from all professions in the theater, film, and television industries. Our host, Michael Taylor, is currently the only African-American male serving on the Board of Directors at The Old Globe, the fifth largest regional theater in the country. Shortly after his historic appointment, Taylor created Theatre Corner as a way to showcase the talent of Black artists performing at the Globe, and to engage potential theater-goers within San Diego’s small and decentralized Black community. Since then, Theatre Corner has spread out to many theaters and has featured talent from across the nation. Given Taylor’s deep appreciation for the arts and his commitment to various arts engagement initiatives, many are surprised to learn that his main vocation is actually archaeology. After serving in the United States Marine Corps Infantry for nearly 14 years, he studied Archaeology and Anthropology at San Diego City College, and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Archaeological Anthropology from Columbia University in the City of New York. He is now President of NWB Environmental Services, LLC, a cultural resource management firm specializing in an array of archaeological services. Alongside Michael Taylor is Trevor Neuenswander, a film student at the time studying at San Diego State University. Initially hired by Taylor as a drone pilot for NWB Environmental Services in 2016, Trevor began creating videos and demonstrating his skills with a camera. Theatre Corner was conceived with Trevor behind the camera, beginning with still photos before transitioning over to video. Over the years, the two of them have developed the “look and feel” of Theatre Corner to what it is today. Taylor, who happens to be one of only two professional Black archaeologists working in San Diego County, sponsors Archaeology for Kids, a STEAM program that brings the archaeological sciences to under-served youth in San Diego. As part of this innovative program, Taylor visits classrooms to expose youths—especially those who look like him—to the possibility of an exciting and viable career that they may not have known existed.
