TYSON SUZUKI (Murdock)
Tyson Suzuki was born and raised in Hawaii, and has always had a passion for visual arts, theatre, and telling a good story. Initially, Tyson began his media endeavors in behind the lens for close circuit television (school bulletins) during his primary and secondary education. With a knack to tell a good story, he spent copious amounts of time writing and shooting. He wrote his first stage play for his high school at the tender age of 17, which was an initiative through peer education. This was also his first stage performance.
Finding a way to use his talent in conjunction with a rebellious youth upbringing Tyson was scouted for his talent. He was fortunate to get sponsored by a local youth activism group to develop public service announcements, and a documentary that aired on public access television. Seizing the moment to utilize professional equipment, Tyson joined the statewide public access television internship team. Being the youngest on the force he was fostered by veterans in television and film, which proved successful when he won his first film festival award at the age of 18. He later went on to work for Time Warner in the creative department for local programming. After hard work and networking, Tyson was picked up to work on the set of LOST in the camera department for seasons 1 through 3.
Up until that moment Tyson had not considered acting as a career, until one day on set the producer and director inspired him to be an actor. Within a few weeks he was working on set as a background extra. Since the moment of inspiration, Tyson has stepped up destined to make a successful name as an actor and host. However, he stays true to his roots by holding the vision to one-day return from in front of the lens to behind the lens.
Currently, Tyson works as a rookie commercial actor and host. Professionally, he works as a print model represented by multiple agencies. Driven by the ambition to learn and master his craft Tyson holds two degrees, and he is currently in college studying media production, and theatre. On his free time (if any) he likes to play, surf, camp, learn the piano, and study Japanese Kanji characters.
