• About Me

    Phil Tyler was born and raised in Pasadena, CA. For the son of a teacher who loves A Chorus Line and an airline pilot who loves checklists, stage management made an obvious career choice. He attended Hofstra University in New York, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in stage management, as well as an English minor. Between productions, Phil also works for Tyler Digital, developing custom websites, products, and services using WordPress.

    After a year working in Los Angeles and Hollywood, he now lives in Washington D.C. Phil most recently finished working on Girlstar at Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA.  In his spare time, he is usually found with a well-worn paperback or listening to The Mountain Goats.
