Tyler Brondyk is the founder of Guys Like Us. Tyler grew up in Massachusetts with his sister, Melanie, and parents, Bill and Laura. At an early age, Tyler got involved in many sports and soon found a love for soccer. After starting off on his town's 4th division team, he later went on to co-captain his high school team, played soccer at the collegiate level, and most recently, attended preseason camp with the New York Red Bulls II and played semi-professionally in Germany. Tyler has learned that trials,tribulations, and countless failures are necessary for success. The combination of hard work, persistence, and a whole lot of passion has been the mantra since the beginning. In elementary school, Tyler picked up a speech impediment, a stutter, and then just years later in middle school, he was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Patient endurance was crucial in order to overcome these challenges. Prayer and hope were two powerful instruments that have set Tyler free from these personal battles, as he now lives a life with minimal symptoms. All glory given to God.
