Growing up in a small town in central California, Tyler began receiving intuitive mental images
when he was only 10 years old with the foretelling of his grandmother’s death. Intimate
communication with a deceased loved one evolved into “reading” classmates, and Tyler soon
found himself the victim of schoolyard bullying. He eventually sought the guidance of a
renowned medium who immediately recognized his gift. Between speaking to the dead and
predicting people’s futures, and juggling math homework and gym class, life for a teenage
medium in a small town became anything but easy.
After a series of life- changing events – including a near- death experience – Tyler recognized that his passion, calling and life purpose was to bring clarity and closure to those he was privileged to read. Tyler continues to work on managing his often – overwhelming gift.
SD: How did you discover your gift?
TH: It started back in April of 2006 at the age of 10 years old. One night, I woke up and had a feeling that my grandmother was going to die. While I was explaining it to my mom, the phone rang and my mom was told that my grandmother had passed away.
SD: How do you prepare yourself for a reading?
TH: Since I am the conduit and need to stay unbiased, I clear my head of all thoughts and make room for mental space. I also do a little mediation to help.
SD: How do you handle criticisms or skeptics that don’t believe in your ability?
TH: It is all about being open minded and bringing validation to a person. There are always going to be skeptics out there no matter what we do. I have a gift that I use to help people and that is what I love doing.
SD: Your show is in its third season. How do you keep it fresh?
TH: I have performed over a 175 readings, and you can never plan for what is going to happen. Each reading is a mystery and surprising. I have definitely grown more confident in myself as both a person and a medium.
SD: What can fans expect at your show?
TH: The live show is performed in two parts. In the first half, I share my experiences and what I have learned from being a medium. The second half is a Q&A. Interacting with the audience is fun and very exciting.
