Tyler is the product of aspen trees, dirt roads, liberal arts, homeschooling, and the feeling of not being good enough.

As an actor, Tyler most recently played Michael in tick, tick…BOOM! with Monumental Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, he played Man 2 in Songs for a New World at Village Theatre directed by Devanand Janki in early 2022. In late 2021, he originated the role of Austin Dickinson in Dillon & Caps’ Show Me Eternity.

As a playwright, Tyler’s play Barrel Men had its Off-Broadway staged reading debut in September 2022 with Pan Asian Repertory Theatre. Tyler is a part of the inaugural cohort of Primary Stages’ Creative Access Grant, having been nominated by Pan Asian Repertory Theatre. In 2021, he premiered his solo show “The Role of Other” at Theatre Crude Fringe Festival in Oklahoma City, OK. Prior to that his show We Must See These Things was a part of Pan Asian Repertory Theatre’s NuWorks Festival 2021.

Tyler holds a BFA in Acting/Directing from Pacific Lutheran University and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance: Music Theatre from NYU.
