Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello, my name is Tyler and I am a sophomore at Fitchburg State University. I am a Game Design major with an Honors minor. My concentration is in game production. I am also a radio DJ and a tour guide.

During the Summer, while I'm not teaching children wonderful things, I work in the IT department of Pine Street Inn, a homeless shelter.

I enjoy making a complete fool of myself and not taking anything seriously. I also enjoy Steam sales, people watching, and saying stuff that makes people laugh.
