Founder at Tyler Dean Creative Co, with varied experience in Residential, Retail, Furniture, and Installation Design, as well as digital and manual fabrication.

I'm compelled by design that moves and empowers people through unexpected formal strategies, materials and narratives.  I'm seeking people and companies to collaborate with on projects that awaken people to their own potential and the power of human creativity.

Design Within Reach Inc., New York, NY, US, Account Executive

I came on with DWR to help ramp-up for their Semi-Annual Sale at the 57th Street Design Flagship, and quickly got into selling mode to help deliver on my sales quota within 2 weeks. I rapidly memorized the full catalogue and took in a great deal of knowledge about customer interfacing and sales strategy.

SHoP Architects, New York, NY, US, Designer

I began at SHoP working as a Fabrication Designer, abstracting existing and conceptual projects into built models. Fabrication methods included hand-built, 3D printed and laser cut/CNC routed components. I then spent 10 months helping develop a luxury residential high-rise from Project Concept through the Design Development phase, with work ranging from material research and facade concepts, to consultant coordination and technical drawing sets in Revit. I was responsible not only for creating content for client meetings, but also for communicating design ideas and promptly replying to RFI’s and client requests.

I then spent 4 months working with the Director of Residential Planning to help develop office-wide standards for the design of Residential Interiors. The content ranged from code-compliant, parametrically-functional fixtures (designed in Revit) to furniture and layout guides which assisted our staff in designing elegant, code-compliant interiors.
