Ty is an award winning director/writer best known for his comedic animated shorts. His film "Baxter" has screened in dozens of cities across the world, and was awarded Best Animated Film at the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival in 2013 and Best Student Film at the New Jersey Film Festival in 2014.  "Baxter" was recently nominated for a Student Oscar at the 41st Annual Student Academy Awards.

Ty was introduced to the world of theater in elementary school. Expressing his goofy personality onstage was the best kind of outlet for such a rambunctious and energetic kid. More than anything else, he enjoyed the nature of comedy and loved to discover what made certain people laugh. He admired Jim Carrey and Robin Williams for their exaggerated performances and over the top personalities.

The desire to explore the act of performance through digital media led Ty to The Savannah College of Art and Design. Here he earned his bachelor of fine arts degree in animation. Upon graduation, Ty moved to New York City to begin working on commercials as an animator and layout artist at The Moving Picture Company. After spending two years in the big apple, he relocated to Los Angeles to continue his career in the arts.
