He holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics from California State University Channel Islands and a master's degree in education from Azusa Pacific University. At Villanova, Tyler firmly believes a high five is just a student away and that the camaraderie between all members of the community is palpable. His favorite Villanova tradition happens during Freshman Welcome Week when seniors are assigned a freshman buddy. The senior and freshman matching t-shirts and the stories behind them get retold throughout the years. If you were to visit Tyler's office, you'd find a world map decorated with pins from around the world. He is always looking to add to it, so you should stop by and add a pin to the spot in the world you call "home."
