Hi, I’m Tyler Hogan, and I am easily fascinated. I love soaking up information and passing it on. I study theology, geography, theatre, family — and anything that would make the front page of wikipedia.
At home, you’ll usually find me with a good book in one hand, a cuppa tea in the other, and probably a toddler on my lap trying to drink my tea and berating me for reading books with no pictures. I live in Delaware with my wife, Helen, and my three small daughters: Kaylee, Avalon, and Sierra.
I work with my parents, Bob and Maggie Hogan at Bright Ideas Press. My job is to bring new, amazing curriculum to the homeschool market; which means I get to work on cool thing like my new e-atlas, WonderMaps, and The Mystery of History. I also sometimes blog about geography, ministry, and homeschooling at BrightIdeasPress.com.
My other job is Operations Manager at Grace for Dover: a non-profit Christian Community Development Organization in Dover, Delaware. We’re an umbrella organization for all kinds of amazing ministries, doing things like job readiness training, financial literacy, ESL, respite care for families and children with disabilities, and lots of other awesome projects still in the works.
I use this website to help people who want to connect with me about homeschooling, ministry, speaking or performing. To be honest, I don’t blog much. I probably should. Maybe someday. For now, you’ll have to settle with occasional posts and a lot of haiku. (Seriously, if you click on Blog, it’s mostly Haiku. Don’t ask why.) However, I do plan to send out a monthly-ish newsletter about my family and our work with Grace for Dover which you can subscribe to.
Some of my favorite posts (non-haiku) have been:
- 5 Ways to Read to Your Kids (So They’ll Actually Listen)
- How to Travel the World (From the Comfort of Your Home)
- 5 Tips for Better Book Browsing

I grew up in Dover, Delaware. My parents homeschooled my older
bother brother and I through High School. We’ve been members of the same PCA church since I was three. During High School, I interned and traveled the country with AIM International, performing and giving workshops in mime and ministry. I went to Belhaven University where I earned my B.A. in Theatre with an emphasis in Ministries. While at Belhaven I also got to travel with the Joshua Squad to Italy, Switzerland, and India, and do an apprenticeship with PUSH Physical Theatre.
After college, I married Helen. We had been friends since we were teenagers, went to Belhaven together, and fell in love Senior year. We immediately started making babies. Kaylee was our honeymoon baby, followed by Avalon and Sierra the over the next 3 years. Having grown up in a house with only boys, I find the world of little girls both strange and hilarious.
I started working at BrightIdeasPress right after school as well. Well, really I had started working there when I was twelve, but I wasn’t full-time. I manage all of our new products and got to launch our digital publishing division and our intern program. I also developed WonderMaps and am working on some other super-fun projects.
In 2011, after reading When Helping Hurts, I started volunteering to help my pastor launch Grace for Dover, and in 2013 I became its first employee. There’s so much to do, and I can’t wait to find out what this is going to look like!
