Before launching Platform Artist Management in 2001 Darren Tyler was an agent at Vanguard Entertainment and then William Morris Agency. He had the good fortune of working alongside and guiding the careers of Jars of Clay, Third Day, Kutless and many others in his 18 year career.
In 2007 He began asking himself what if. What if He used his talent and creativity that had made him successful at guiding successful music careers and aimed that at solving the problems like extreme poverty. That question began simply enough and 3 years later resulted in him walking away from his successful management firm and walking headlong into the risk, adventure and rewards of living life that answers the what if question with what is.
The answer to that question is Conduit Mission. Conduit exists to be a pipeline of resources, talent and assistance from places with plenty to places in the greatest need. To date $1.5M in cash as and in kind donations have been changing the lives of children in Haiti, Togo Africa, India, and many other places around the world.
