Tyler's love of storytelling began at a young age. In his time away from school, he would be found running around and creating elaborate plotlines that take place throughout every room of his family's Flint, Michigan home. As an adult, that passion for creating original narratives first manifested in the way of making music videos for a band called Botanica Chango. Through these first experiences on set, Tyler realized immediately that he wanted to be deeply involved in filmmaking. Soon after, he began taking on commercial projects around the world and writing his own narrative films.
Today, Tyler is in an internationally awarded filmmaker that appreciates being involved in all aspects of the process. In addition to writing and directing, he also shoots and edits his films. This hands on approach allows him to be involved in every part of the stories. Inspired by the writings of Paul Thomas Anderson and Charlie Kaufman, Tyler's aim is to tell unapologetic, human stories with honest characters.
