Originally from Weatherford, Oklahoma, Tyler has always loved gaming. When he was seven, his cousin taught him the programming language BASIC. After that, he was constantly bothering his mom to come up with video game ideas, some of which she still takes credit for to this day.
As technology progressed, Tyler went on to make his first web page using WebTV on Angelfire. In high school, he refined his programming and web skills to create an online RPG using PHP and MySQL. The game was a hit with his friends. Building off this momentum, he went to Oklahoma Christian University with the goal of becoming a famous video game developer. Though he's since taken his talents to the business world at InterWorks, he still makes games in his spare time.
Aside from developing for work and for fun, Tyler enjoys outdoor activities like running, tennis and even gardening. Of course, nothing beats spending time with his wife Jenny, son Collin and daughter Sophia.
