Kyle has been working as a creative full time since graduating college in 2005. After 3+ highly successful years doing print and web design in-house at a small multi-national electronics company, he quit his job to pursue freelance opportunities which were popping up more and more. That December, in 2008, he took Steve Walters’ Screwball Academy screen printing crash-course. It was a transformative experience that stands as the single most influential event of his young career.
Since that time Kyle has been breaking his ass in half trying to produce great work for his clients, whether they’re rock stars or workaday musicians, massive corporations or scrappy start-ups, big ad agencies or fellow solopreneurs. He prides himself on being trustworthy and honest, and providing conscientious and responsive service.
