Hi, I'm Tyler
Welcome friends, family and fellow Patriots to my Georgia House of Representatives 2020 campaign website. Just wanted to take a minute to tell you about myself and earn your vote.
I grew up in an extremely humble broken home with a blind mother and two brothers. As a kid, I learned how to survive, make do, and just appreciate what you have. I played football and baseball, worshiped in church youth groups and was baptized in the 6th grade (best day of my life)! In youth group service I learned about my passion to serve and take care of my fellow men and women. I began my life of service volunteering at senior homes, homeless shelters, and working with children with special needs.
A CAREER OF SERVICE
As I grew into a young man, I decided I wanted to serve on a larger scale. In January 1998, I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. My new adventure started at Parris Island South Carolina. After 7 years and 3 Units, I was able to earn my way to the Marine Corps Anti-Terrorism unit Fast Company, and fight terrorists overseas to protect OUR Homeland. I then decided to make a change and switched over to the Army. I launched my journey to become an Army Airborne Ranger. I was able to achieve this while doing another tour in Iraq, and one in Afghanistan. I served as a Ranger and Pathfinder where I ran snipers and heavy machine guns.
LIFE AFTER THE MILITARY
After retiring, I still had a passion to serve, so I coached Varsity and Junior Varsity high school football for two years. I was blessed to have an opportunity to be in church leadership and teach Sunday school to 3-5 year olds. My wife also has the Passion to serve; she worked for the Dawson County Sheriff's office, and as an Advanced EMT working in Fulton, DeKalb, and Forsyth Counties for the last 12 years.
THE NEXT CHAPTER
I tell you all this because now I want to serve the great people of Georgia’s 9th House District. I will fight for you and your rights just as hard as I fought for this great nation. I want to take the fight to the Gold Dome to defend our conservative North Georgia values. I pledge to you today that if you will elect me you will have a fighter in the General Assembly. Thank you for your time and God Bless.
