Kyle was born in Portland, Oregon, and spent much of his upbringing outdoors as a Boy Scout and third generation Oregonian surfer and fisherman. Kyle grew up working in the daycare that his mom owned, during the summer he would help run the summer camp and took kids on field trips all over Oregon. He fell in love with the uniqueness of the Oregon Coast at a very young age. His first coastal adventures began with learning how to surf and kayak and have evolved to include ocean dory fishing in his boat, kiteboarding and scuba diving. Kyle attended a military high school in Central Oregon and then worked as a technician building prototype machinery for various companies including Siemens Energy, Boeing, and Intel. These days you’ll find Kyle enjoying life here in Pacific City—surfing, fishing and exploring with his dog Koa.
