Hi! I’m Ty! I spend my free time playing with my furbabies, walking through nature, painting, and socializing with my loved ones. Communication is one of my absolute favorite things about being alive. Poetry? That’s communication. The yellowing of leaves on a houseplant? Communication. Error messages on a computer screen? Communication. And, of course, the subtle ways our four-legged companions shift their body language–communication at its finest. My undergraduate studies focused on psychology (of humans and nonhuman animals) and ethics, and my life feels most full when I’m advocating for others. I look forward to meeting you.
