In the Creative Media and Digital Culture program, Tyler led a team of three developers working on the pre-production of web content for the upcoming virtual reality real time strategy game Beasts and Heroes for Emortal Sports, David Ortiz's newest venture. Tyler's team was one of five working on the project, and he often collaborated with and contributed to the design, marketing, and content teams. The site is fully responsive and hand-coded, as well as expandable in order to facilitate the expansion of the game and game community. The project site can be found here.
Tyler worked with a team of three others for the complete redesign of board game trading company Game Camel's website and logo. The structure of the site was redesigned from the ground up, going from a CMS-generated site to a hand-coded, custom site ready to expand with the business itself. Unfortunately, the business venture was abandoned but images of the prototype site can be viewed by clicking here.
As Prose Editor of the 2016 and 2017 Salmon Creek Journal, Tyler evaluated and edited literary pieces from students, faculty, and alumni of WSU Vancouver. In Fall of 2016, Tyler lobbied the Student Media Board for support in the creation of the Salmon Creek Digital digital arts and literature journal, and followed through with its production. In addition to his own responsibilities and efforts to create the Salmon Creek Digital journal, he also took on the role of Poetry Editor for the 2017 Journal. The staff of the Journal were also promoters and advocates for the creative community, fostering engagement and inclusion.
For two years, Tyler worked with students, faculty, and community members of WSU Vancouver on the development of their writing skills. Rather than providing a line-editing service, as a consultant he took a hollistic approach to the writing process, focusing on skill-building rather than assessment and promoting an environment in line with a professional learning community (PLC). This position gave him valuable experience in collaboration and customer relations, as well as refined his writing and technical communication skills.
