Tyler was born and raised in a small town in west Texas. After high school, he moved to Lubbock, Texas to attend Lubbock Christian University. He spent almost six years working for a construction company as an installation manager and helping with the company books where he could. In 2019 Tyler and his wife decided to pack up and move to Flagstaff for the ease of access to all the outdoor activities the area has to offer. Keep an eye out for him around town and on the trails because he loves the outdoors and is regularly out running and exploring all that Flagstaff has to offer.
