Tyson holds a BS in International Relations from Florida State University and a Masters in Intelligence Studies from American Military University. I served for five years in the Army as a cryptologic linguist with the 101st Airborne including a tour in Afghanistan. I currently work with the Defense Logistics Agency as a program analyst. I have been SCUBA certified for over a decade and will be certifying for my NAS Underwater Archaeology certs in June. I was last on expedition in 2018, a follow on to a EC flag expedition, returning to the Loita Forest in South west Kenya, conducting counterpoaching evaluations with the Mara Loita Community Rangers.
