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 working as a director, writer, animator, and layout artist at The Moving Picture Company. After spending two years in the big apple, he relocated to Los Angeles and has spent the last two years continuing his career in the arts.
