U.S. Paralympic Alpine Team
2x Paralympian, Public Speaker

“Never ever give up, you can accomplish anything if you try"

Tyler or TC (as his friends call him) is a 2x Paralympian and member of the United States Paralympic Alpine Ski Team. He lost his right leg below the knee at the age of one due to a congenital condition known as Fibular Hemimelia, which means he was born without the fibula bone. Not letting this deter him he participated in various sports and activities while growing up including basketball, swimming, tennis, dance, and karate. He eventually found his true calling in the form of alpine skiing. Thanks to a combined effort from the Pennsylvania Center for Adapted Sports and the National Sports Center for the Disabled Tyler fell in love with skiing and quickly moved up in the standings. After being awarded a scholarship to attend and spectate the 2010 Vancouver Paralympic Games a dream was formed, to compete at the games and represent Team USA. Four years later Tyler had his chance when he was named to the 2014 United States Paralympic Team that would compete in Sochi, Russia. Since then he has competed at the 2015 World Championships, World Cups and the 2018 Pyeongchang Paralympic Games with some Top 20 and Top 15 finishes to his name.

While ski racing is a major part of Tyler's life it is not the only passion he has. Tyler has a huge heart and is a strong believer in giving back to communities. He volunteers with varies programs and spends much of his free time giving back to the groups that helped get him started including the Pennsylvania Center for Adaptive Sports, Amputee Coalition of America, and the National Sports Center for the Disabled just to name a few. Tyler enjoys promoting living healthy and active lifestyles among students and schools across the country with the help of Classroom Champions. He also uses yoga as a powerful tool for helping others. Tyler does public speaking events and loves to share his passions and journey. If you are interested in booking him for an event or just want more info please contact him.
