Tyee Tilghman is an actor currently living in Los Angeles, CA. He trained at The American Conservatory Theatre, where he received an MFA in Acting. He received a BFA in Drama from West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV.

Before pursuing acting Tyee was studying to become a marine biologist, and his love for the ocean has never waned. While acting is and will always be his first love, Tyee considers himself a storyteller. As he was seduced by acting, he began to see the broader picture of how stories were told, and has now begun to write, direct, and produce to be as involved in the process of making art as he can, and to always find ways to stay creative.

Although he was not born there, Tyee calls Denver, CO his home, because it was the place he found his true circle of friends, and learned what kind of citizen of the world he wanted to become.
