Tye looks like he might be Italian-American. He's originally from Nova Scotia and has competed in bodybuilding events. From what I was able to determine through online searches, he apparently only ever did two solo jerkoff films and some solo print work.
The originals for these photos are larger than they appear below and are part of a set with more than fifty images of Tye from several different shoots. To download the complete group in a free zipped folder, click here.
