About Tyson

I’m originally from a rural town outside of Binghamton, New York. My parents divorced when I was young. Like George Bailey shaking the dust of this crummy ol’ town off his feet, I leapt at the chance to attend Carnegie Mellon and later NYU. After graduating, I taught high school English in Brooklyn for a little bit, then I moved back to Pittsburgh and headed up a rock band while working at local theaters.

These days I write and act for a sketch comedy troupe and travel with my girlfriend. I like watching cartoons and reading books about civil engineers. I love music more than life itself, especially indie psychedelia/punk. And yeah, I’m down to pause for the cause. If I have any claim to fame at all, it’s that one time RZA shook my hand.

I was in 2nd grade when Crystal Pepsi came out. I loved the stuff. Like Pogs and the O.J. Simpson trial, clear cola was an icon of its time.
