In between gigs (off and on) Ty teaches a master Acting for Film class at the world renown New York Film Academy. And travels frequently by invitation to various Hip Hop/Rap conventions due to the popularity of a character Ty played called 40 Dog in the Rap cult classic CB4 produced by, co-written by and starring Chris Rock.

Ty will be returning to the stage and revisit a role he created in the original play, Window of Opportunity produced by The Doors' legend, John Densmore and will recreate the role for the independent film version.
