Kyle holds more professional degrees (including a PhD in Bioengineering) than is socially acceptable, but he also likes college football, so it balances out. In the daytime Kyle works for a medical device startup company in Northern California, but in the evenings he frequently attempts to be a writer. Kyle is the co-author of How to Defeat Your Own Clone – a satirical look at cloning and biotechnology in pop culture – and is constantly looking for his next creative outlet. A self proclaimed “Internet junkie,” you can find Kyle on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Gmail, his homepage, and occasionally in real life (hyperlink unavailable).
