Intrigued by online forums and games, our newest Mojo, Tyler, started out writing extensions for forum engines like phpBB. His enjoyment of game development led him to co-found Mino Monsters and become the youngest Y Combinator founder ever to be accepted.
Tyler’s entrepreneurial spirit and experience as a founder and mentor give him the ability to relate to and recognize common patterns facing companies today. Whether it’s issues ranging from ineffective processes to unproductive development teams, Tyler has a keen eye for understanding and clarifying business priorities to help optimize business development.
When away from his screen, Tyler has many interests including physics, travel, and triathlons.
Worked making games, designing a hedge fund product, and an e-commerce startup.
Co-founding Mino Monsters because it involved learning a lot of things in a very short period of time.
The opportunity to think deeply about a solution is something I try not to take for granted.
Inquisitive and driven.
The variety type of problems to solve. You could be trying to solve a problem in optimal farming terrain one day and learning why IPv4 is a problem for a certain solution the next.
Designing a ray casting engine to overcome browser canvas memory limitations.
Working with ambitious and talented engineers to solve the hard stuff.
I enjoy reading from anyone who can keep finding interesting ways to see and express their field of work after many years.
Advanced machine intelligence.
Laughter with those I love.
