Tyler joined CBI in August 2022 as a software engineer. In previous lives, he has taught high school math and computer science, written software tools for computer animation, and worked as a field biology technician tracking moose calves in northern Idaho. He has always been interested in ecology, sustainability and appropriate technology.
After growing up on the shores of Puget Sound, Tyler studied computer science at Middlebury college with a particular focus on spatial computing, exploring cartographic design alongside geospatial algorithms. His previous experiences as a GIS analyst and a wildlife technician enable him to communicate effectively with a variety of professionals, and inform the decisions he now makes as a software engineer situated in the world of conservation biology.
Currently back in the Pacific Northwest, Tyler gets his kicks canoeing, backpacking, and checking the surf forecast.
