Tyler Freeman was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and joined the United States Marine Corps in 2008. He was stationed in the Carolinas shortly thereafter with military occupations primarily involving helicopter squadrons as an Aviation Maintenance Supervisor and a CH-53E Helicopter Crew Member. After leaving service in 2014 and completing undergrad at University of North Carolina (UNC), Greensboro in 2017, he moved to Atlanta to begin his MBA/JM degree journey at Emory University. When Tyler is not studying, he is either looking for a new international location to visit, scuba diving, or motorcycling with his girlfriend, Lea. He also enjoys discovering and tasting rare and small batch bourbons around the country.
