Ideas need architects to translate them into the real world. Kyle knows about spaces, people, pixels, and building codes.
He is an entrepreneur, designer, husband, and father who has built a career creating companies that provide a compelling experience. Those experiences have historically focused on the virtual space, but more recently, have shifted to brick and mortar with projects such as The Surveyor Hotel, Atlas Kitchen + Cocktails, Passenger Coffee Roasters, and Prince Street Cafe.
Before moving back to Lancaster full time, Kyle spent a year as an EIR at The Samsung Accelerator in SF. He also co-founded the mobile apps Seesaw and Everlapse which were acquired by Byliner, an award winning (digital) publisher and subscription reading service. While at Byliner, he served as VP of User Experience.
Prior to Seesaw, Kyle founded & led design at CoTweet, a social media management system for large corporations. In 2010, CoTweet was acquired by ExactTarget.
