“Never ever give up, you can accomplish anything if you try"
While living with an amputation has been admittedly difficult for Tyler, it has also led him to meet an array of interesting people through his travels and participation in skiing. Skiing is Tylers true love, and he trains long and hard for races. Tyler trains primarily with the National Sports Center for the Disabled in Winter Park, Colorado. Dedicating all of his time and energy he was able to make the 2014 U.S. Paralympic Team and compete in the Giant Slalom Race at the 2014 Sochi Paralympics. He finished 26th out of a large field and is already looking towards the future. Tyler also competed in the 2015 Alpine World Championships in Panorama Canada where he finished 14th in the Slalom Race and 24th in the Giant Slalom Race. He is back to training for the upcoming winter and already has his eyes set on the 2018 Games in Korea.
Tyler has a huge heart and is a strong believer in giving back to the community. He volunteers with numerous programs and spends much of his free time giving back to the groups that helped get him started including the Adaptive Sports Foundation, Pennsylvania Center for Adaptive Sports, Amputee Coalition of America Summer Youth Camp, and the National Sports Center for the Disabled.
Tyler also does motivational speeches and loves to share his passion and journey. If you are interested in booking him for an event or just want more info please contact him.
