Tyler is a playful designer who sees humor in all things. He employs great care when completing even the smallest of tasks with a relish and attention to detail that others might describe as neurotic. Anything worth doing is worth doing well and is often more rewarding when done with just slightly too much zeal.

If he claimed to have a driving life philosophy, it would be “Make good art and be, unabashedly, yourself.” If in fact he had a driving life philosophy, it might be closer to, as Oscar Wilde famously did not say, “Life is too important to be taken seriously.”

On an ideal afternoon, you may find him reading (or writing) a good book while nursing a hot toddy and listening to the pouring of the rain. He also enjoys photography and making jokes that, more often than not, amuse only himself. The more discerning observer may recognize him by his vibrant fashion choices.

“And when things get tough, this is what you should do: Make good art. 
I’m serious. Husband runs off with a politician? Make good art…IRS on your trail? Make good art. Cat exploded? Make good art.” – Neil Gaiman
