Tyler J. Edwards

Social Media and Events Coordinator

Tyler is a social media and advertising creative with experience working in many realms related to the culture of Toronto’s urban atmosphere.


While DJing and organizing events around Toronto, Montreal, and New York, Tyler was the Creative Director for the city’s first all-girl DJ group.


After seeing the impact that Toronto’s urban scene has on influencing the city’s culture as a whole, Tyler created TUF (Toronto Urban Fashion Foundation) which worked as an incubator to elevate independent fashion designers.


This led to a working relationship with Pras Michel from the Grammy award winning hip-hop group ‘The Fugees’ at a time when he was building his own tech start-up— ZMBIZI, where Tyler was able to hone his skills as a marketing specialist.


In the world of creative advertising, Tyler’s flare can be seen in the communications for clients such as Starbucks, OLG, BMO, Tim Hortons, Truly, Twisted Tea, and Pet Valu. In 3 short years, Tyler has taken home over 25 internationally recognized advertising awards including 2 Gold Clio Awards, 2 Gold ANDYS Awards, and a Webby Nomination.
