From an early age, Tyler was a multi-sport athlete through high school before he went on to play Division I football at Western Illinois. Tyler’s sports career was unfortunately plagued by injuries that resulted in 5 surgeries, but this ultimately fueled his passion to pursue the medical field and help other athletes navigate the rehabilitation process..
After finishing his last season playing football in 2018, Tyler was committed to expanding his knowledge of strength & conditioning and sports performance to better transition his patients back to their respective sport. He landed internships with the strength and conditioning football staff at WIU in the Spring 2018 and Acceleration Sports Performance located in Naperville, IL in the Summer 2018. Tyler continued on to coach at Elite Performance Academy in Chesterfield, MO where he was the Director of High School Football Performance and founder of Elite Breakfast Club. In the Spring of 2021, Tyler joined Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks as an intern while he finished out his master’s and chiropractic degrees.

Although Midwest kids at heart, Tyler and his fiancé made the big move to southern California in 2021 and are enjoying their new home in Camarillo. In his free time, he loves to spend time with his fiancé, Arianna, and their fluffy dog, Deacon. He considers himself a black coffee connoisseur and an avid foodie.
