Dedicated to the Community

Perhaps instilled while earning the rank of Eagle Scout, Tyler realized early in life that he was determined to make a difference and support the greater good of the community. Tyler is an active member of the Delran Recreation Advisory Committee, planning free events for the community. Tyler was influential in developing and facilitating the Delran Winter Festival and Delran Night Out, which brought the first fireworks show to Delran after a nearly 20-year hiatus. Thanks to the efforts of many – including the police department, fire department, and EMS ­­­­– these events continue to break records with crowds of over 3,000 residents.

He is also the liaison for the Delran Township Green Team, which helps make Delran a more sustainable community through education and various projects.

Tyler also currently serves as a Board of Education Member on the joint Board of the Burlington County Special Services School District & Burlington County Institute of Technology. Tyler was the founding Vice-President of the Delran Education Foundation, a nonprofit raising money for educational initiatives.

He also earned the distinction of “30 Under 30 Trendsetters” by SNJ Millennials – an award honoring those who have committed to serving their communities.
