Kyle grew up around the Great Lakes, mainly in the suburbs of Chicago. He went to Washington University in St. Louis, double majoring in photography and economics. During his time in college, he began to deepen his relationship with nature by hiking with friends on various trips, and it has grown stronger by the year.
After graduation, Kyle worked on a trail crew with the Montana Conservation Corps for a season. Afterwards, he taught 6th grade Math and English in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Missouri.
Kyle wants to work in wilderness therapy as a way to combine his passions for working with students and his love of nature. When Kyle is not at work, he’s usually hiking around somewhere enjoying the landscape and making some photographs.
