  • In 2018, Tyler covered food events and restaurant openings in Florence, Italy, which included attending one of the region's buzziest food festivals: eatPRATO.
  • Most recently, Tyler lived in Brazil, where he became thoroughly obsessed with açai by the carton, self-serve buffets, and coxinhas. His efforts to find and recreate these gems in the U.S. have been met with mixed success so far.
  • As an English teaching fellow at the Catholic University of Santos, he taught a workshop focusing on regional differences in American cuisine.
