Tyler first started working in recreation as an Intramural Sports Official/Site Supervisor while he studied at Central Washington University. He then worked in facilities at Washington State University for two years, before moving to Portland in 2009 to work at PSU. Tyler is extremely happy to be back in the Portland area since his family is just a short drive away in Longview, Washington. As a former member of the Central Washington University basketball team, college athletics are something that Tyler keeps a close eye on. In his free time, he continues to follow the schools where he’s been (CWU, WSU, and PSU) and also enjoys traveling, golfing, river rafting, and kayaking.
