Tyler discovered wine while attending college in the Pacific Northwest. He learned the culture surrounding wine while living for a year in rural France, and then honed his skills working at a wine shop on Newbury Street in Boston. Second Glass was born out of Tyler’s desire to create a fun, entertaining atmosphere when learning about wine. The company began as an unpretentious wine print magazine but soon grew into an event company that ran on new media and technology. Tyler has been instrumental in the use and development of new technologies to create and distribute wine information. He conceived of and developed the mobile application used at Wine Riot and other third-party events and utilizes new social media techniques to make wine information more easy to obtain and more useful to the average consumer. Tyler has been heralded as a new voice in the wine world. This summer, he was profiled as one of 2010’s most exciting young entrepreneurs in INC Magazine’s 30 Under 30 and crowned “the prince of Boston’s wine revolution” by Stuff Magazine. Tyler has written for Boston Magazine and held a column in the Weekly Dig and was a regular on the NECN Morning Show. He’s also appeared in The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald and, Boston Metro.
