Tyler also performed for the entire community during a TReK (Truth, Respect, and Kindness experience). 

A testament to hard work, Tyler learned guitar at 21, just as he began to lose his vision. 

“It wasn’t until I was 21 and told in no uncertain terms I was going blind from a degenerative retinal disease that I was confronted with the realization that my master’s in Math probably wasn’t going to serve me very well for much longer,” Tyler writes on his website. “It was then that I picked up a guitar, and a hobby slowly became an obsession, and an obsession a passion.”
