Ty Walker was never one to stand out in the crowd. Always hiding away, keeping to himself, he hated the spotlight. Although he loves music, he gets nervous about performing in front of other people in fear that they’ll laugh or critique his work. He’s sweet but extremely shy, never really knowing how to talk to people. Ty is always positive and happy, never thinking like a pessimist/ He doesn’t believe in bad thoughts, because he knows they’ll bring him down. He likes a good laugh, always doing things to make people giggle. He loves hearing someone laugh, as he knows that they’re happy and that he’s succeeded in cheering them up. He likes to think it’s his duty to lift someone’s mood, and he’ll do what he can to get someone to crack a smile.
Growing up in Seattle was easy for Ty. He lived right on the waterfront, and when there was good weather, he’d take his board and go surfing with his younger brother. His family weren’t exactly the richest, but Ty didn’t mind. He was thankful for anything he received, and he never once complained that he was behind with the latest technology and fashion trends. In fact, he’d always put his brother first, making sure he had the better life rather than himself.
His parents have no idea where he got is musical ability from, as both admit they’re tone deaf. Ty can play guitar, bass guitar, piano, drums and ukulele, all from being self taught as he could never afford real lessons. After maintaining a decent 3.8 GPA throughout his senior year, his parents rewarded him with a brand new guitar and the money to go to a decent University. Ty fell in love with the music program at Stonewick, and although it’s on the other side of America, Ty couldn’t pass up the opportunity. During his freshman year, he tried out for soccer, just for some change against his music, but ended up loving it. He spent a long time debating whether to join a fraternity, but felt compelled towards Delta Upsilon. Or more put off by the other frat houses, but Ty tried to convince himself it wasn’t that.
