Tyler Kellogg is an engaging artist, photographer, and youth crisis intervention specialist living in Rensselaer, New York. His interactive art-creation and storytelling assemblies encourage students to identify their own personal frustrations and struggles as challenges that can be turned into positive change to self, school culture, and the greater community.
Tyler brings his fascinating life experiences to life with his trademark down-to-earth style. His authenticity helps to form lasting connections between his message and audience members.
An effective communicator, Tyler works in coordination with school staff to design assemblies that deeply engage students, teachers, and school community members alike. Tyler brings along his works of art and photos from travels around the world to reinforce his message of kindness, compassion, individuality, self-respect, and community.
In 2007 Tyler was the youngest finisher of the 140.6 mile Ironman USA. After being hit by a truck while training, Tyler’s chosen response was to perform 100 random acts of kindness for strangers in a project he titled “Tyler DoGood.”
This project transformed his suffering into service, and eventually into happiness. This gave him the opportunity to be interviewed by the BBC and numerous other media outlets. In 2009 Reader’s Digest named his project “America’s Best Road Trip.” Tyler is a frequent conference keynote speaker, podcast guest, and TEDx presenter.
Tyler’s work as a photographer has taken him around the world to countries like India, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Spain, Cambodia, France, Iceland, and the USA. Each program Tyler presents is tailored to suit the unique group being presented to. Assembly debriefs and/or follow-up sessions with individuals, small groups, and classrooms are available.
