Proudest Moment in Taekwondo: Making the 2017 Senior National Team

Did You Know?: The reason Tyler joined taekwondo back in 2002 is because he wanted to be a Power Ranger...he enjoys photography and whenever he is not training he is most likely out with his friends taking photos...his great-grandfather competed in judo at the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
