Born and raised in Montana, Tyler developed a feral curiosity at a young age. This disposition has led him around the world, to nearly all of the US national parks, and to the backcountry of his own creativity and consciousness. He’s dabbled in such occupations as professional wrestling, archaeology, social justice advocacy, and academia. At his core he is a writer (currently working on a memoir entitled How We Reach for the Sun: A Field Guide to Losing Your Friends). Follow his adventures on Instagram (@tylerdunning).
