Tyler was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, enjoying the “Show-Me State” until he served his mission in Fresno, California. Because he lived in St. Louis, Tyler is a die-hard Cardinals fan (go Cards!). Tyler was the baby of four half-brothers and four half-sisters, but he doesn’t consider any of them “halves.” He was first married in 1999, and then divorced in 2005. He later remarried, marrying Tammy’s sister whom he had the biggest crush on while growing up. Today they have a family of three girls (20, 16, 16) and 2 boys (15, 10). Tyler began his law enforcement career in August of 2000. He first started at Utah State Prison. He later transferred to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office where he currently serves as a Sergeant. He has served in the following different areas throughout his career at the Sheriff’s Office: jail, patrol, investigations, contract-city patrol, courts with specialty assignments on the traffic team, Special Victims Unit, and SWAT. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time playing board games, bowling, and watching movies or hiking with his family.
