Born and raised in the city of Detroit, Tinsley owned and operated one of the largest security firms in Denver. For over fifteen years, Tinsley provided security for many celebrities, which included the Rev. Jesse Jackson, actress Rita Moreno, athlete Earvin “Magic” Johnson, superstar singer & actress Janet Jackson, and three-time Heavyweight World Champion Muhammad Ali.

Before donning the DangerMan suit, Tinsley served as a board member for the Denver Victims’ Service Center for 8 years. He was also a member of NOVA, the National Organization for Victims’ Assistance and he was also recognized by COVA, the Colorado Organization for Victims’ Assistance for his outstanding service to the victims’ advocacy movement. As DangerMan, he travels the US hoping to give a message of hope to children in under-served urban communities.[2]
