Tyler Dobies is originally from Golden, Colorado, but now calls Steilacoom, Washington, his home. He is studying music at Pacific Lutheran University as he pursues a degree in Vocal Performance. He is an active member of PLU's LUTENation Step Team, University Chorale, Residential Life, and Red Carpet Club. He is very busy but enjoys most every moment of his busy life. His ideal vacation location is anywhere with a sunny, sandy beach and a well-tuned piano nearby. Whether that be Hawaii, California, Florida, etc., he could find happiness at any of those locations. His most memorable journey has been his move from Colorado to Washington during the summer between his sophomore and junior years of high school. His mother had recently returned to the US Army and was stationed at Joint Base Lewis McChord. He had lived in Colorado for ten years prior to the move; leaving his hometown, home church, and friends was difficult. However, with the love of his family and God's guidance, Tyler found a new home in Washington, and he hopes to stay for a while.
