BanD GEEK
TURNED TV PRODUCTION NERD

I’ve always had a thing for motion pictures.

Hello! As I'm sure you've guessed from the title of this website, my name is Tyler Newberry. You probably don’t want to read my life story so here’s the TL;DR (too long, didn’t read) version:

Starting in high school, I traded being a band geek for being a TV production nerd. I loved working with the old miniDV cameras, editing short newsreels and creating motion graphics in Final Cut 7, and directing the daily recording of the “On The Prowl” news show that was broadcast in every classroom.

After high school, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go to college or start gaining experience, but with pressure from my parents and others, I decided to attend Indian River State College, enrolling in their digital media BAS program. At IRSC, I studied 2D animation, commercial graphic design, photography, film, video editing, and 3D modeling. During my time at IRSC, I offered my services and talent to anyone who wanted it, many times for free or for gas money. I spent years shooting and editing videos, mini-documentaries, interesting stories, and designing flyers and logos for anyone who needed them.Eventually, as my time at IRSC came to a close, I felt that I had learned and gained so much experience that I was ready for a change in scenery.

My father offered me a deal in May 2014: move to Colorado, go to school, work a part time job – you can live with me. Naturally, I said yes! I packed my little car with everything I owned and possibly could carry. After moving to the beautiful town of Longmont, I found a job, some friends, and attended Front Range Community College, taking some general AA courses. I had a thing for music too – but I didn’t see a way into the music industry, until I met the right people. During this time I was going to clubs and bars to meet people. I moved here with no friends, so I made it a point to find some.

Through an acquaintance I met some great people from a group who called themselves “boredom fighters”. They made electronic music and played shows at people’s houses and bowling alleys. I was bored most of the time. I came from a small town. I wanted to fight boredom. I started going to some of those shows they organized, and started filming with my budget DSLR and making videos for them. The video quality was dubious at best, but the music-driven editing was spectacular - it blew everyone away. We had big dreams but small pockets at that time.

Fast-forward to 2018, and Forward Momentum or “ForMo” is a large entertainment company with connections throughout the country that organizes giant music festivals, promotes shows, and releases music under a record label that receives hundreds of thousands of downloads.

In June of 2014, I was scheduled to start training to work for AT&T, but I received an email that totally blew me away – a craigslist posting for an internship I applied to had actually responded. “Enzymatics…” It seemed like some kind of chemical company.After a couple of phone calls, I learned that it was actually a genetic sequencing company, and they’re actually working on (essentially) a cure for cancer through personalized medicine. Wow. I was asked to interview. I did, with the whole company in one room, which was about 20 people at the time. It was nerve-wracking. Skip forward two years, and Enzymatics is purchased by Qiagen, giving ArcherDX their independence once again. I’m deemed to be such a vital part of the marketing team that they hire me on, full-time, as a graphic designer and videographer. I spent my time at this company creating value through video & design, influencing six-figure to multi-million-dollar purchases of genetic sequencing kits.In late 2017, I made a move once again. ArcherDX had given me some incredible experience, but unfortunately the organization had to downsize due to high operational costs, FDA regulations, and expensive ISO certifications. I was part of that downsizing.

But lo and behold, Better things were waiting for me. I moved to Denver with my beautiful girlfriend (now my wife), and found a position at NCTI – the National Cable Training Institute. This company has some serious roots, being in business for 50 years as NCTI, then bought by Glenn R. Jones and renamed Jones International University (JIU) after his Jones Intercable business went sky-high. I now work as the Digital Media Specialist for NCTI, managing a small team of graphic designers and animators, and working hard every day to bring my A-game to my life and my job. So much has happened so fast in my life recently, and I sincerely hope that if you’re reading this, you’ve enjoyed it.
