Christopher Tyler

Grandville, MI, United States

I was Born In Grand Haven Michigan where i lived most of my childhood life. I Moved a few times around Michigan to Allendale for a bit and then went to high school in Reed City before joining the Military. I was in the United States Army for 9 years where I served in a Combat Engineer Unit in Kansas and also with the military police in Tennessee. I Went on two tours while I served, one in Kosovo in 1999 and the other In Baghdad Iraq in 2003-2004. I also have a love for Music and play the bass guitar. I played in Tennessee in a rock band for 9 years touring. Now I am expressing myself in other artistic ways by trying this thing called Art Prize out. I have been fascinated with outer space and aliens since i was really little, I think when I first saw Star Wars or E.T. I wanted to be an astronaut for the longest time as a kid, but, then when the challenger thing happened I changed my mind. Currently I work at Kellogg's making pop tarts and other products in the bake shop there. I live in Grandville Michigan, where i moved in 2010 from Murfreesboro Tennessee to be an uncle and kind of have a start over. I love it here in Grand Rapids area, and I look forward to Art Prize here every year. It feels good to actually put myself out there this year with something I made. I don't do that very often, so I am nervous about it, but hopefully someone gets some enjoyment out of what I created and it makes some other little kid want to explore the universe much like I wanted to as a kid.
