Tyler has left his hometown in Baltimore, MD to join us out on the “Best Coast”. Tyler has a unique tennis story, as he was the #1 JR in the Mid-Atlantic region but ended up taking a six year hiatus from tennis until the age of 18. Tyler received a scholarships to the University of Delaware for Lacrosse (because that is what they do in Maryland – crab cakes, football and lacrosse). While at school he realized his true love was tennis and left Delaware to pursue his dream.

Tyler moved to Florida where he trained at the Chris Evert and Saddlebrook academies. The next destination was Belgium where he spent four years working to master the “red stuff” and played on the Futures tour traveling and living all over the world. He was also a hitting partner to Justine Henin and Wayne Odesnik.

After 6 years of traveling and competing professionally, Tyler dove right into the world of coaching. He spent 4 years as the head pro at the largest racquet country club in Baltimore. Tyler has coached all levels and ages; seeing improvement from his stunts is what he loves most about his job and brings some East Coast flair to FCTC.

Tyler joined the FCTC family in 2015.
