Ty’s globe-trotting childhood spurred his boundless curiosity about the similarities and differences in people and organizations across cultures, regions, and industries. He focuses now on the factors that make projects and companies successful when they center empathy, respect, and compassion.
Ty has experience in marketing, online publishing, education, production, and the arts. He currently serves on the board of directors of a glassmaking nonprofit while continuing to hone his skills in that artistic undertaking.
While earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in glass from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, Ty mentored international students and organized a European tour to visit artist workshops abroad. He is a lifelong learner currently studying, among other things, Portuguese, his wife’s native language.
