Tyrone’s journey to 3D Printing began with his humble beginnings growing up during the 1980s and 1990s with a curious mind as to how virtually everything imaginable worked and how to build things from the ground up to make almost anything. As an underachieving student, his mind and interests were more in tune with the curriculum that was not taught in traditional academic settings. Tyrone’s interests/mindset could be interpreted as: imaginative, musical, technical, and spiritual. Using these characteristics has given Tyrone the gifts of a forward-thinking and providing persona where he looks to introduce a mindset about thinking beyond the typical depths of society. Tyrone’s vision is one where humanity can freely share thoughts, ideas, and experiments, among other things, to make our world a much more livable place from one corner to the other.

Tyrone began his entrepreneurial journey while serving in the USAF, by offering IT services to businesses in Las Vegas. Since then, he has started several other businesses with varying degrees of success which has taught him valuable lessons about life and business.
