Tyler came to Tallahassee in 2005 to attend Florida State University. He discovered the great local mountain bike trails and soon after purchased his first mountain bike from Higher Ground. Not long after that, he started working part time at Higher Ground and discovered his passion for bicycles, both working on them and riding!  He graduated from FSU in 2007 with degrees in Small Business Management and Finance. After graduating he continued working at Higher Ground. Tyler moved to Charlotte in 2012 and worked at Uptown Cycles, a racing and training focused shop. Tyler has always been mechanically inclined, and has worked on cars since before he could drive.
