After finding a passion for music at a young age, Tyler decided to study vocal performance. While studying at Augusta University, he discovered his love for acting with his debut as Enjolras in Les Misérables. Since that September in 2013, it has been almost impossible to find him off the stage or outside of rehearsal. Among the roles he has performed since Les Misérables have been Jack in Into the Woods, Gabe in next to normal, Anthony in Sweeney Todd, and Jamie Wellerstein in The Last Five Years. Although currently based out of Atlanta, Tyler has his eyes and heart set on performing in New York City and is attending several intensive workshops to ensure his success in the theater mecca. His passion and work ethic have already earned him top places in national competitions and attendance to prestigious programs and master classes.
He's had the opportunity to learn vocal techniques from Cynthia Lawrence, Mark Diamond, Matthew Edwards, and Wendy DeLeo LeBorgne. Tyler has also participated in an improvisation workshop with The Second City. At Augusta University, he has studied with Patti Myers and is currently taking vocal lessons from Tonya Currier. Because of the opportunities he has had to learn from others in the industry, Tyler has become a more versatile and confident vocalist and performer. He hopes that his hard work and dedication will one day earn him the roles of Tony from West Side Story and Marius Pontmercy from Les Misérables.
It is not very often that Tyler has a schedule that is completely devoid of rehearsals, recitals, or learning lines, but when he does he likes to seek out local restaurants, play tennis, or workout. Although he knows that his field requires absolute focus, he makes sure to take the time out of his busy schedule to spend as much time with his family as he can. Music has become such an integral and defining aspect of who Tyler is that he cannot fathom a career path or life without its influence, and he is very excited for what his musical future holds.
