Tyler is of Métis/Cree descent, from the community of Faust, Alberta. He was adopted into a military family at birth; and grew up in various places across Canada as well as Germany. He graduated from the University of Toronto, specializing in Aboriginal studies and English Literature. In his spare time Tyler enjoys writing and performing poetry and prose. When not in his spare time, Tyler would rather be writing for theatre. A random fact about Tyler is that he can recite whole scenes to a lot of science fiction movies. Sometimes he can recite the whole movie (We will test this claim, Tyler!).
