Mikey Taylor is the current President and Managing Principle of Commune Capital, a private equity real estate investment firm.

A serial entrepreneur at heart, he first found success with nearly two decades of professional skateboarding. Throughout his career Mikey held lucrative sponsorship contracts with DC Shoe Co., GoPro Cameras and Alien Workshop. Over his tenure, he had over 100 signature skateboard decks, 7 pro model shoes and was one of the most recognizable pro skateboarders on the planet.

Not one to rest on his laurels, early in his career, Mikey was already thinking about life after skateboarding. What’s next was co-founding and the eventual launch of Saint Archer Brewing Company. This San Diego based craft beer company and its first of its kind business model, led to quick success and a multi-million dollar purchase by MillerCoors Company in 2015.

Since then, Mikey has been busy, co-founding Sovern Skateboards, Avni Intelligence (an entrepreneur education platform and podcast) and most importantly Commune Capital.

Armed with only a high school education but more than a lifetime of real world experience, Mikey is committed to helping the next generation define the new American dream.

Born and raised in Southern California, Mikey resides in Newberry Park with his wife Jen and their two young daughters.
