Following the military Kyle traveled the world, worked/studied abroad, graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, created a production company, co-founded a nonprofit, and has been working in the advertising space ever since.
Kyle is originally from Madison, WI, enjoys fly fishing, Balderdash and dog parks.
