Drone Pilot | VFX | Author | Post-Production Specialist | Interactive Developer



Since Ty was very young he had two passions: Aircraft and media...

From sitting in a room plastered with posters of military aircraft to making home movies with his Super 8 film camera; Ty has always dreamed of combining his two loves. Ty enlisted in the Navy in 2001, serving in a helicopter squadron aboard the USS Independence in Yokosuka Japan. There, he also fell in love with animation.

After majoring in visual effects in college, Ty got involved in the dot-com boom in the early 2000s. His innate knowledge of programming and computer technology took hold, and Ty envisioned a media world converging on the internet with amazing computer graphics supporting free-floating robotic aerial cameras. Ty began crafting radio-controlled helicopters with cameras mounted on them.

Ty continued his media career, and has managed to fuse his love for all media and aircraft into many successful ventures. Ty currently writes books on his many areas of expertise and acts as a consultant to others venturing into the media and drone worlds. He also still performs shoots with drones, provides post-production services, and educates others.
