Touching on creativity, embracing our hardships, developing empathy, and spreading compassion; Tyler inspires metamorphosis within each of us.
Tyler's story starts months after becoming the youngest finisher of the 140.6 mile Ironman USA just after his high school graduation in 2007. While on a training ride several weeks into college, someone went out of their way to hit Tyler with a truck. This experience changed him drastically. After spending over 1.5 years spiraling into depression and darkness, Tyler saw the light. He decided to begin the healing process by using this lone act of violence as inspiration to create over 100 acts of kindness for strangers.
Over the summer of 2009, "Tyler DoGood" was born, and 175 acts of kindness were performed for over 115 strangers. The project gained international acclaim, and rocketed Tyler into the spotlight. In 2010 Tyler gave his first of three TEDx talks. His experience includes keynoting conferences, speaking to schools, and giving guest lectures at universities. Tyler has seen first hand the depths of undiscovered potential that exists when we allow our suffering to inform our compassion.
Tyler has used these experiences to inform the work he has done in life. Tyler has designed leadership development programs for Fortune 500 executives. He's created personal development programs as a youth mental health crisis intervention specialist. Most recently, he's served as the Vice President of Education and Public Programs at the Museum of Innovation and Science.
