Tyler Walker is an ADR director, line producer, script writer, and voice actor for Funimation Entertainment. A native of East Texas, he grew up spending equal time playing in the woods, playing Atari, and watching cartoons like Scooby Doo, Super Friends, Star Blazers, and Battle of the Planets.
After graduating from the University of North Texas with a BA in Radio, Television, and Film, he spent time playing in bands and eventually started working as an ADR engineer and production assistant at watching in 2002. A bit of trivia: His former band, The Pointy Shoe Factory, had three songs featured in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan.
Since then, he has worked as ADR director on nearly 1,000 episodes of such series as Baccano!, Toriko, Ghost Hunt, Basilisk, Black Cat, Samurai Warriors, Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom, Hell Girl, Is This a Zombie, Kado: The Right Answer, Tales of Zestiria, 91 Days, Dies Irae, and King’s Game. In addition to directing and producing, he has also written hundreds of scripts for titles such as Fairy Tail, One Piece, Bamboo Blade, Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom, Hero Tales, Shangri-La, Samurai Warriors, and both seasons of Is This A Zombie.
When he’s not at Funimation, Tyler plays drums and produces music for his bands, Wirewing, O.Deletron, and 100’s. His wife, Heather, has appeared in several titles like Maken-Ki, Shangri-la, Fairy Tail, Toriko, and Overlord as well. Somehow they still find time to go play in the woods with their three dogs.
