About Tyler

I try to improve 1% every day while being mindful of living in the moment. By working hard and trusting the process, I’ve been able to help grow some of the fastest growing companies in Silicon Valley, produce full length music albums, launch profitable businesses and travel to 42 countries around the world. To me, the keys to happiness are living simply, practicing gratitude and pursuing your goals.
