About the Artist
Tyler is a Kansas City native, who after studying at Columbus College of Art & Design returned to KC to pursue his creative endeavors. Growing up with parents that owned a sign shop gave Tyler unique access to a range of production resources at an early age. He creatively re-purposed the equipment to align with his current passions – making everything from skateboards to designer vinyl toys. In 2010 he landed a job with a local agency, where today he maintains a part time gig as Associate Director of Toy Development. A long established knowledge of production and process, combined with 5 years of agency experience, has given Tyler a well informed approach to design.
