Born and raised in East Side San Jose, Francis Tyrell grew up in love with watching movies, artistic performances, and music videos. He never imagined himself pursuing the arts as a career choice. During his junior year of high school, Francis began to explore dance. He performed at homecoming rallies and found a particular interest in choreographing in order to express himself through movement. By graduation, he knew that dance would continue to be a moving force in his life and sought to pursue it professionally. At the age of nineteen, he auditioned for one of the most prestigious companies in the world, Academy of Villains. Not only did he make it, but he quickly progressed and earned the title as director and choreographer of the Bay Area branches: Academy of Villains and Young Skull Club. Francis works as Pharside and Phoenix’s right hand man, helping share their vision to the rest of the world. Through Academy of Villains, Francis has been featured on shows like Showtime at the Apollo, America’s got talent, Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights, and were TruTvs Fake-off Season 2 champions. Francis also does community with San Jose’s Cathedral Of Faith and high schools in his local area. Continuing to spread his love for the arts, he prides himself in leading by example and is looking forward to leaving his mark and entertaining audiences everywhere.
