Tyler Hurst calls himself the Anti PR Guy. In the past few years he has organized two downtown Phoenix events, helped start a hyper-local Phoenix blog, presented at the first Phoenix Design Week, yelled at people while moderating meeting discussions, argued on Twitter about excellence and everything in between and done his absolute best to hold others to a higher standard than they ever though they were capable of reaching.
So why Anti PR Guy? Because he’s tired of the hyperbole and half truths, tired of the close-mindedness that pervades far too much of Arizona and tired of people settling for good enough. He may be the biggest critic you’ll ever meet, but he’s also the first guy to take responsibility to fix it. Throughout all this, he’s told stories. Stories of himself, stories of other people and stories that chronicle his time here. He tells stories. True stories. True stories about the people and businesses that shape his life, his community and his world.
