Tyler introduces himself on his website:
My name is Tyler Bachtel. I am American-Born of Italian descent. I am an actor/model from Dublin, Ohio. I left my hometown last year to pursue this new career, and I am currently represented on both coasts. I am a fitness nut. It started when I was tired of being 120lbs. So I set out to become a body builder. After two years I peaked at 220lbs. That experience taught me all the ins and outs of getting into shape. I also love sharing my fitness knowledge for those who wants to get into shape, so I hope you can benefit from my knowledge. FOOD I find cooking to be extremely therapeutic. Growing up with an Italian grandmother made me appreciate the art of cooking and the pure love for good food. I have been cooking since I was 7 years old. When I decided to become a body builder, I had to cook 7 to 8 meals daily not to mention the food prep for the following day. I perfected my creativity when substituting sides to spice up the monotony. I am always extending my cooking abilities and I have been working on my own line of protein products. My passion for travel started from childhood. My family and I traveled a lot to Europe during my young soccer career. We also did a lot of road trips throughout the United States. With my acting/modeling career I am fortunate to be able to continue to travel. I am lucky enough to travel in luxury, but what is even better is to travel on a budget while getting the best deals on hotels, flights, restaurants and attractions. I will also be sharing my travel findings with you on my site.
