Tyler is a designer. Tyler is a very good pattern maker. Although confident in his ability, he constantly seeks improvement and educational experiences.

His pragmatic but quixotic nature has led to the intersection of art and our consumerist society where his inescapable passion to create and ever-present need for sustenance meet in harmony.  

Due to the prohibitively high cost of education in the country of his birth (USA) he was forced to pursue his education through alternative means. He persuaded individual professors at internationally renowned design and art schools to provide guidance and mentorship. He used the textbooks issued by these universities, along with other sources of information, to pursue his passion as an autodidact. These efforts were supplemented by seeking employment opportunities where he could gain valuable insight and educational experience. 

He is tenacious and driven by an insatiable curiosity.
 

He eats almost incessantly; his high metabolism and eating habits have often been compared to that of a humming bird.

 

Tyler is constantly working out patterns in his head while he pretends to socialize.  Who wants a social life when you have ideas?  

 

He is multi-dimentionaly focused.   

He plays a lot of piano when he isn't wrestling his basenji/ shiba inu mix into submission or obessivley draping in his basement studio. 

 

Reading is great. He likes dystopian themes and classics. Ape and Essence is a favorite. He named his dog Huxley after his favorite author, Aldous and his cat Kafka, after Franz.  Dorian Grey left a lasting impression as did Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and Parfume.  The latter left him intently sniffing with a curious fervor at awkward moments. 

 

When he is working he enjoys listening to 70's Punk and Post-Punk , Mo-Town, too much Roy Orbison, classical orchestral compositions, gangsta rap from the 90's and japanese Enka Blues. Morrissey, Danzig, Kan Mikami, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave are his favorites.

 

When he isn't in his studio, he can be found wandering aimlessly in a foreign city, in a forest, desert or coastline with his camera. 

 

His mom is Patricia. His Father is just J. 

 

He was born behind Disneyland in California. 

 

If there is will, there is a way.

 

Motivation is self generated, and success is predetermined by effort.  

 

 

"I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.” - Nikola Tesla
