Tyson Hinz’s Bio
Tyson grew up here in Ottawa, in Orleans to be more specific. He’s a proud alumni of both St Matthew’s in Orleans as well as Carleton University where he got his BComm. After living a few years, as they say “across the pond,” Tyson is happy to be back here in Ottawa and working with WebMarketers.
Believe it or not, Tyson actually retired from his first career back in 2017! Before joining the WebMarketers team, he was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to have a small career as a professional athlete playing basketball in Europe. Where he lacked in hard skills, Tyson made up for in competitive spirit, work ethic and ability to deal with high pressure scenarios. Thankfully, he no longer has thousands of people angrily yelling in his direction when it comes down to crunch time!
Hobbies / Interests
Naturally athletics has always been a large part of Tyson’s life. He still tries to stay active as much as possible. That being said, he does fancy playing the odd video game every now and then. Between that and work, you can find Tyson doing his best to train his cat to do a wide range of tricks… thankfully that is not his day job as the only real trick is how Ori (the cat) can eat such an outrageous amount of treats.
Q & A with Tyson
What are some of the places you've traveled to or lived in?
I was extremely lucky to have the opportunity to live in Holland for two years in a town called Zwolle as well as in Germany for a year in a town called Weissenfels. Living abroad and getting to experience their cultures as well as getting to travel the world was an incredible experience and I hope to continue to see what other beautiful places this round earth has to offer.
Where someone would typically find you on the weekend?
Being completely honest, my weekends are not always the most exciting! I will often fit in the odd basketball game where I try not to get hurt reliving the glory days. You may also find me angrily yelling at the screen when my Fantasy Football players are underperforming on any given Sunday. In the summer, I do enjoy playing tennis with Kyle, one of the co-founders of WebMarketers. As he is my boss, I will refrain from commenting on my win/loss record as I do enjoy working here and don’t want to jeopardize my job here at WebMarketers 😊
What are some other sports & activities you enjoy?
I am average at best at Golf but I enjoy getting outdoors.
What's your preferred beverage?
Rum + Coke is my drink of choice, and if that isn’t available I’d order a Rum + Pepsi.
