The Early Years

Tyler was born on 24 January 1996 and grew up in the town of Hanford in California.

He attended Sierra Pacific High School before opting for homeschooling. He has often hinted that the reason for this was bullying from other students due to his clairvoyant abilities.

Tyler's first intuitive experience was when he awoke from a dream convinced his grandmother was about to die, only for her to pass away moments later. Since then, he has focused on refining his abilities in the hopes of delivering much-needed words of comfort to the bereaved from their loved ones on the other side.

He completed his high school studies at the age of 16 and chose to pursue a career as a hospice nurse. While studying, Tyler continued with his work by offering private readings at a local bookstore for $40 a piece.

When he was 18, Henry suffered from a ministroke due to a brain cyst. As a result, he is reluctant to drive, which explains why his mom plays chauffeur in all his shows.

Eerily, Tyler consulted with a medium while he was still at school, and she predicted that he would create a career out of TV appearances by the age of 19 and fulfill his life's purpose by writing books and helping people find closure.

While Tyler's early efforts centered on working with people in his hometown, he is now focused on mass broadcasts of his readings, publishing books, and performing at shows and events.
