Meet Tyler Young

Associate Director of Paid Media


Where are you from and how did you wind up at Blue Magnet Interactive?
I’m originally from Lansing, Michigan. I moved to Chicago in February 2015 and started working at Blue Magnet Interactive in May of 2016 after applying for the Paid Media Strategist position.

What's a fun fact about you?
I was once a tour guide at the Grand Canyon. I’ve lived/worked in 6 different states (including Illinois) in 5 years, before finally settling down in Chicago.

If we lived in a world without internet, what would be your alternate career?
Television writer.

If a restaurant were to name a sandwich after you, what would be on it?
A toothpick with a tiny picture of me, and probably some cured meats.

What is your drink of choice?
Lagunitas Lil’ Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale

What’s your view on Malort, Chicago’s traditional sweetest swedish liqueur?
Everyone should try it once, and never then again.
