A little more about Tyler – Tyler was born and raised in Sunbury, Pennsylvania by two loving parents and is the middle child of three having both an older and younger sister. Tyler was seen more as a sports kid when he was younger being a part of football, basketball, cross country, baseball, and even wrestling for a brief period. (this was very brief I might add.) Other than singing all of Danny’s songs in Grease with his grandmother whenever he could, Tyler had never tried acting or any sort of performance in his life other than chorus in school. It was in eighth grade when he was asked to be a part of the high school musical, The WIz. He was hooked from that point on. Tyler would begin auditioning to be in every production he could be a part of throughout high school. He began to become so enthralled with acting that he began watching every critically acclaimed movie he could and ended up finding three actors who, to this day, he still believes define what acting means to him: Charlie Chaplin, Robert DeNiro, and Heath Ledger. Tyler would continue working his craft by attending university to further his passions.
He has spent the last four years training under multiple professors and learning a large array of acting practices such as Stanislavski, Chekov, and Meisner. However, his favorite of them all was the physical acting training known as Suzuki which he studied under the outstanding teaching of Maria Porter. Tyler’s outlook on the art form of acting was changed the moment he began learning the training and craft of Suzuki. He saw that theatre was not just entertainment, but was a profession of sharing and trusting those who you are with, using our voices to raise questions within an audience, creating stories that people can learn from and trying to implement the shows complex messages into their own lives. Tyler has been involved in two devised works that both have had Suzuki’s training as their main foundation. His love for devised works is beyond any other and he hopes to one day create his own devised work and take it somewhere out of the country to share with another part of the world! Along with devised works, Tyler’s passion goes to all spectrums of acting! From musicals to post-modern plays(his favorite!), he hopes to venture into all types of works that he can. Of course, he has a few dream roles as well: Emcee in Cabaret, Lee in Sam Shepard’s True West, and Iago in Othello.
Fun Facts! – While being at school, Tyler found a lot of different hobbies to occupy the little free time he had. He learned how to play Ukulele, he found a love for weight training, but above all he found magic! It started with simple, and pretty bad, coin magic he found online. But as time progressed, Tyler became obsessed with learning any trick he could. He bought a pack of cards and there was no turning back from there. It became a norm for everyone to turn to him and say, “So what trick do you have today to show us?” He continues to work this hobby and loves to do parties! His brand of parlor style magic continues … This being said, Tyler’s age range of birthday parties does not go below 12 years old. But he also loves to do receptions, weddings, or any sort of event where he can just walk around and blow people’s minds!
