Hi, I'm Tyler.

I'm the co-founder of Unsupervised, which helps companies find new opportunities using their complex data.

About Me:

I'm most well-known as the co-founder and COO of Unsupervised, which helps companies discover opportunities in their data (over $100M found so far in 2021). We have raised over $50M from top VCs and have worked with 30% of Fortune 10 companies.

I think of myself as someone who believes very strongly in the ability to intentionally develop skills and tools that make us happier and help improve the world. I call this Skill-and-Tool Optimism and I do a lot of things that help me practice and evangelize it.

Currently, that includes building Unsupervised, investing $2-4M/yr in promising startups, and talking about skill and tool optimism via this blog and my podcast.

Podcast

Going deep on skills and tools.

This podcast covers whatever I find interesting, and often gets wonky about skills and tools. I try to show how people accomplish impressive things by intentionally learning new things.

Every recording is shared first with a small, trusted audience. In a process that loosely resembles peer review, people react to episodes. When both they and the guest agree, we publish the episode publicly.
