Born and raised in Mesa, Tyler left the desert to head to South Africa for a few years, before coming back to his hometown.
He is married with one young child—but though his immediate family is small he has a large extended family. Both he and his wife are the youngest of nine, and they each have more than 30 nieces and nephews on their respective sides!
Tyler enjoys playing guitar and recording music, and not only used to perform full-time, but has produced music for other artists and bands. He also still enjoys the IT industry, and has a server computer at his home that he still likes to “tinker with.”
