Tyler is a three-time Paralympian and retired member of the United States Paralympic Alpine Ski Team. He lost his right leg below the knee at the age of one due to a congenital condition known as Fibular Hemimelia, which means he was born without the fibula bone. Not letting this deter him, he participated in various sports and activities while growing up including Basketball, Swimming, Tennis, Dance and Karate. He eventually found his true calling in the form of Alpine Skiing. Thanks to a combined effort from the Pennsylvania Center for Adapted Sports and the National Sports Center for the Disabled, Tyler fell in love with skiing and quickly moved up in the standings. After being awarded a scholarship to attend the 2010 Vancouver Paralympic Games as a spectator, a dream was formed: to compete at the games and represent Team USA. Four years later Tyler had his chance when he was named to the 2014 United States Paralympic Team that would compete in Sochi, Russia. Since then, he has competed at the 2015 World Championships, World Cup Games, the 2018 PyeongChang Paralympic Games and the 2022 Beijing Paralympic Games.
