Tyler was born in Calgary, moved to the Edmonton area at 1 and returned to the Calgary area in time to complete high school. He was very active in sports; playing hockey, baseball, football and soccer. Tyler was fortunate enough to see most of Western Canada playing Midget and then Junior Hockey, and following a year of college hockey, finally settled at the University Lethbridge where he completed his degree and participated as a member and playing coach of its CIS golf team.
At that point Tyler headed back to Calgary to pursue a career as a golf professional. It was on the course that he caught a lucky break, he ended up playing a round of golf with an executive at a multinational oilfield service company and eventually decided to pursue a career in the oilfield. Kevin and Tyler instantly struck up a friendship and 3 months later he was moved into Drayton Valley, Alberta where he worked hands on in the field and gained a great respect and appreciation for the people from whom he learned. He has spent the last number of years in business development roles within the completions services sector and has never looked back.
As a husband and father of two lovely daughters he elected to take a big leap of faith and six years ago and along with trustful and respectful partners they founded Avenger Oil Tools. They have enjoyed a successful relationship,building a strong private business together and are looking to expand to a 5th location soon.

No – In my youth, I thought I was destined to be a professional athlete. My aspirations shifted to university and golf. Golf was the key because that is where I met and development a friendship and professional relationship with my mentor, Kevin. Kevin introduced me to the energy industry.
Ultimately, it’s what I enjoy. I love it. It’s fun. It’s hard to imagine my developing personal and professional relationships in another field. At the end of the day, the world relies on oil and gas to sustain life as we know it. Petroleum is the base product in pretty much everything. If it’s synthetic, it almost certainly originated from petroleum.
Yes. I have more than one – in fact two are my competitors.
