Coming from a family of 10, Koltyr has always looked for ways to stand out. He grew up all over the west coast, but now calls Bellevue “home”. As a child, he developed a love of music and the arts, and became an avid marching band enthusiast. He took his love of music with him to Utah Valley University, where he continued in the performing arts while pursuing a degree in International Business. After graduating, Koltyr moved to China to continue his international studies and work abroad. It has always been important to Koltyr to feel like he is growing and making progress, and he does his best to help those around him grow as well. While performing and traveling are his passion, Koltyr’s favorite thing to do is spend time outdoors with his husband and dog.
