Hey, there! My name is Tyrese Leverty and I use he/him/his pronouns. Truthfully, it is tough to fit who I am into a few hundred characters on a website. So, I decided to present myself through a few different lenses to give more perspective on what makes me Tyrese. I would describe myself as someone who makes the most out of the least as I've spent a lot of my life overcoming adversity to accomplish a lot. I hope you're able to get a small picture of me here, but I encourage you to reach out to get to know me better, too. Happy reading!
What I'm up to is always changing as I enjoy creating stability out of uncertainty. I'm also a big believer in showing that I can walk the walk instead of just talking the talk, so please feel free to check out my other pages to see more examples of what I've done. However, it's pretty safe to assume that I'm spending my time creating and designing, creating, communicating, and planning in my professional roles. In my free time, I enjoy music, exploring new locations, and movies or other forms of media. Overall, my favorite thing to do is to learn and work on improving myself before turning around and teach, inspire, and develop others so that they can find their own success.
As much as I am a natural strategic, long-term planner, I have also added the ability to be flexible and understanding. I can't plan for or control everything! Instead, I like to focus on adaptability as a way to keep pushing myself forward. Speaking of going forward, I am always ready and excited for the future. My next steps include aligning myself with a company whose values are similar to mine, creating a foundational skill set which I intend to use far into the future, and launching my own career to establish myself as a credible professional within this next decade. I won't give everything away right now, but I always have an idea of where I'd like to be in the future, and time is simply a constant.
As far as where I've been in the past, I was born in Burnsville, MN, and spent my childhood moving between the cities of Apple Valley, Lakeville, Burnsville, and Savage before moving to Minneapolis to attend college. Minnesota is certainly my home, but I've had the pleasure of traveling to Florida, California, Nebraska, Oregon, Illinois, and Wisconsin and I can't wait to travel more in the future and to take my first trip outside of the U.S. I am very happy in Minneapolis at this point in time, but I strive to never plateau, so I feel like more urban cities like Portland and Chicago could be a very natural transition when the time comes to move into a larger market.
This is my favorite question in the entire world! Why? It is consistently the most difficult to answer regardless of the context and, without fail, it turns out to be the most important question in any conversation and pulls out the authentic truth behind people's behaviors and ideologies. My purpose is to design and create experiences for others that inspire them to create positive change within themselves and within their communities. You know that feeling when you feel uninspired and without guidance and direction? Whether it be through my actions, my words, or my creations, I seek to remedy that by leaving others in a better place than where they were before and by giving them a direction to go.
"How do you do it all?" is something I am always asked and I've never really had a great response. While I understand that no one wants to hear this answer, I believe that it is the most accurate one: I have more passions than I can fit into my lifetime. There is so much that I want to accomplish and the limiting factor of time makes me want to do the most with every given opportunity. I'm able to look to the tools, people, and ideas that surround me in order to do the most with the least. That comes with being self-aware and learning how to balance my priorities, energy, skills, etc. I've continued to develop this over time by pushing myself to my limit through my involvement with multiple endeavors and passions.
