Tyler Talley - Director of Rich Media & Video Production
Tyler Talley

Director of Rich Media


Tyler grew up enjoying creative things, but they always felt somewhat unattainable. He held jobs throughout college and high school mowing yards, washing dishes, landscaping golf courses, and frosting cakes until his first internship as a creative team leader at Pioneer Bible Translators. During that time he taught himself many of the creative skills that he uses today.

At Contract Cre8ive, he is the odd one out, because he graduated with a degree in Creative Media from Oklahoma Christian University (not LCU). Tyler considers himself to be an After Effects wizard, but he can also do print design, graphic design, video editing, audio editing, video production, web design and a host of other creative skills. Even though he sits behind a computer for 9 hours a day, he is a huge extrovert and loves nothing more than chatting with anyone about anything. If he’s not spending his free time with his wife, he is teaching himself some new software or skill that he doesn’t yet know how to do (or in the fall he’s watching Oklahoma Football… Boomer Sooner).

He helps drive our mission home with amazing video production.
