A senior at Oakland University, Tyle joined The Post in 2017 as a reporter before becoming the campus editor later that year. The following year, he made the transition to life editor, and in 2019, he was selected as the editor-in-chief of The Oakland Post for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Tyle has a passion for film, rooted in his lifelong commitment as a “Star Wars” fan. Since joining The Post, Tyle has embraced his love of cinema by taking on the role of resident film critic.

He also previously served as the editor-in-chief of his high school newspaper, The Venturian, for three-and-a-half years. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in journalism, with a double minor in cinema studies and Spanish language.
