What's that over there? My bio?!



Tyler grew up in and around Washington, DC where he developed a taste for pineapple juice, board games, and putting on plays. After studying Theatre, Dance, and Music at Cornell University, he returned to DC where he specialized in highly physical and comedic work, Tyler helped to found Faction of Fools Theatre Company, a company devoted to adapting Commedia dell'Arte for modern audiences with productions like Romeo and Juliet, A Christmas Carol, and Our Town. Tyler acted in and directed over twenty foolish plays and productions.

From 2015-2018, Tyler pursued his MFA at Brown University/Trinity Rep's MFA Programs in Acting and Directing, where he studied acting, directing, playwriting, and producing. In addition to his academic pursuits, Tyler also served as Artistic Director of Romp Of Otters, Brown/Trinity's Graduate Theater Community.

Currently, in addition to working as an actor and director, Tyler runs the theatre department at Walt Whitman High School, managing budgets of over 100k and over 600 theatre artists throughout a season. Tyler teaches at Montgomery College, Imagination Stage, Ford's Theatre, and at various other high schools. He is a freelance acting coach, Intimacy and Fight Choreographer, and Movement director.

Tyler currently lives and works in the Washington, DC area with his wife and artistic partner-in-crime, Sarah, their adorable papichon Covi, daughters Mira and Orly, and, yes, a bookshelf full of board games.
