Greetings. I’m an environmentalist, adventurer, and self-improvement seeker. I love making content, pushing myself into new experiences, and learning. I can be painfully neurotic, obsessive, and hyper critical of my choices – aka human. In the end, I’m trying to figure out how to live my best life, help others, be happy, and keep moving forward.

Service Disrupted

Giving over two years of your life as a Peace Corps Volunteer is admirable, but giving up his life is more than Tyler Lloyd signed up for. Service Disrupted is an engaging memoir in which Tyler tells of his adventures and his eagerness to share his knowledge of gardening and agriculture with the kind and quirky villagers in Burkina Faso, Africa. But when he learns that his end of service medical exam showed a positive HIV test, Tyler’s mind becomes consumed with emotion, worry, and despair. The ups and downs will keep you reading to the end with a new respect for Peace Corps Volunteers and the African people.

Service Disrupted, available at Amazon.


My Peace Corps Story


Not every Peace Corps volunteer will try to write a book as I have, but every volunteer has a story worth telling. The My Peace Corps Story Podcast tells some of the many diverse and rich stories of volunteers, in their own words, to create an oral history of the varied experiences had by generations of Americans when they devoted two or more years of their life to the Peace Corps.

Speaking Easy Podcast

Speaking Easy is a cocktail podcast with a twist. Co-hosts Alex and Jordan are both avid cocktail party hosts, often in the company of one another, and have had several people approach them separately about sharing some of their accumulated knowledge on cocktails and entertaining.

With the addition of Tyler, the producer and social media manager, the Speaking Easy Podcast breaks down the cocktails, planning, and other details needed to throw a great party. Now that twist – we’re most definitely not professionals and we’re here to learn and grow as home bartenders with you.

The Manly Green

Several years ago, I had an idea to start a men’s green living blog. For a year, I created content for The Manly Green and loved it. Then, given changes in life and competing interests, I stopped working on this project. I’ve closed that site down and moved the content here and will continue to write about living a greener, better life.
