Ty is one of the longest-standing employees at BizLab, and has perhaps had the most varied responsibilities of anyone within the company. Ty started as Sterling Satellite's webmaster in 2005, where he learned a great deal about SEO and E-Commerce. The birth of Rocket Clicks in 2008 allowed him to branch out and service clients' SEO, PPC and web sales improvement needs. Ty is now the Director of Be Your Own IT, a computer educational company that BizLab acquired early in 2010.
For Ty, the most important part of BizLab's culture is the entrepreneurial mindset. As a whole, the company tries to develop and implement successful new business models. But Ty also enjoys discovering new market trends and creating businesses that are unique and innovative in his spare time.
"This is a place where a young entrepreneur can thrive," says Ty. "BizLab is a unique place where I can express and practice those skills rather than feeling stifled. I feel blessed that I can have control, responsibility, set strategy, and create something new. And that's what makes my job so fun."
When he's not tinkering with a website or planning a new business, Ty coaches soccer and basketball for grade school children from his church. Music (both playing and listening to) is an important part of his personal life, and he spends much of his time off during the summer attending outdoor concerts and festivals. According to Ty, the pinnacle of comedy is and always shall be the sitcom "Seinfeld." Ty has a degree in Management Information Systems from Cedarville University.
