When she watched Predator as a little girl, Laura Tyler thought the monster was extremely cool. Fascinated by the reality of the creature, she knew she wanted to begin a career in special effects. Laura grew up as an only child to a single mother. She went to an art magnet high school where she honed her sculpting skills. She is meticulous when it comes to getting projects done and often too critical of her own work.  She is competitive, self-admitted fan-girl, a sci-fi nerd, and considers herself a jack of all trades when it comes to the makeup world.
