Born and raised in the mountains of Washington State, Tyler grew up exploring lakes and rivers with dreams of travelling the world. After completing his fourth season as a Federal Forest Firefighter in Colorado, Tyler moved to Southern California where he was introduced to the world of sailing. He joined his first crew on a 30-foot sailboat headed for La Paz, Mexico, and quickly learned that yachting and photography were the perfect way to satisfy his passion for exploration, fun, and beauty. Travelling on yachts has been an experience of a lifetime, with Tahiti being his biggest adventure to date. He is excited to find his next adventure in the world of yachting.
