Professional Background

I received my Professional Coach training at The Academy for Coaching Excellence (ACE) in Sacramento and have been accredited as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) by the International Coach Federation (ICF). I am also a licensed Spiritual Practitioner, having completed a 4-year program at Inner Light Ministries in Santa Cruz. Previous to those accomplishments I received an Environmental Engineering degree from Humboldt State University, and a Renewable Energies/Sustainable Development degree from Appalachian State University.

I own and run Infinity Plus 1 Productions, a videography and photography company based in Santa Cruz, which I started in the Spring of 2011. To give back to my community and support teens, I teach one Digital Photography class through the Career Technical Education Program at a local high school.


Tyler helps you recognize and articulate your own truth and self through an active coaching model that holds you accountable for your growth. Using a methodology that is consistent yet flexible, he is focused on clarifying your specific needs. He brings humor, compassion, and a joyful disposition to each session, using a depth of resources to support you in achieving your goals. Tyler has encouraged me to focus on what is most important to me in my life and career, helping me see new opportunities, then supporting me to make big changes with ease and grace. If you are ready to buckle down and improve your life, I would highly recommend hiring Tyler to help guide you on your journey.

When I first began working with Tyler, I had no idea what to expect. I wasn’t even sure I needed coaching! 8 months later, I couldn’t be happier to admit I was totally wrong. The insight and perspective I’ve gained pays dividends every single day. Tyler’s skills as a coach have helped to radically change the way I approach both my professional and personal life. Tyler’s humor and empathy have made our meetings a highlight and though I am going to miss them, I am moving forward with much greater intention and confidence.

I worked with Tyler for a year and during that time I learned a new way of looking at the world. Everything that is holding you back is in your head. Tyler helped me sort through those things and surpass them. He's funny, smart, and caring, which made our working together very enjoyable. I highly recommend hiring Tyler to anyone looking to make a jump into the next level in life.

I decided to hire Tyler as my coach because I was struggling to finish one of my life long goals—writing a book. It was a great decision! Tyler helped me prioritize my time and focus my energy on the most important tasks each week. I also love how he incorporated humor into every coaching session. I am happy to say my book was published, and I am now an international best-selling author. Thank you Tyler!
