Tyler McKnight

Age: 33

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA.

Resides in: Vancouver, WA.

Born in South Carolina but raised in the city of Angels, I bring a sort of rugged glamour to Big Eyed Fish. I have lived in Boulder, NYC, Atlanta, Lubbock and now Vancouver. The first thing I did when moving up here was go to a place where the ocean meets the cliffsides, also known as Cannon Beach (from the Goonies). Totally unrelated, but I have tattoos, lots and lots of tattoos.
