Hi! I'm Kyle.
I enjoy making things that live at the intersection of humor and heart. I REALLY like making things with other people - like singing Don’t Stop Believing with 37,000 friends or putting on a fake marathon with 34,477 internet strangers or having a Viking funeral for the regrets of 20,000+ people. My projects have been featured in the Washington Post, BuzzFeed, WIRED, FastCompany, and more.
When I’m not working on one of my projects, I can often be found giving a keynote somewhere. I enjoy speaking on the topics of kindness, creativity, and the ways in which life is like a grilled cheese sandwich. Over the last 11+ years I’ve spoken to over 350,000 audience members in 49 states.
I’ve been interviewed on a bunch of podcasts over the years, mostly because I have a lot of free time and enjoy the sound of my own voice. If you also enjoy the sound of my voice, here are a few links for your listening pleasure:
Creative Pep Talk - Episode 315
This was a fun one. Andy and I did a deep dive into the story of how our book came to be, from inception to publication.
Lots of good nuggets in here. (I was also on an earlier episode: Creative Pep Talk // Episode 162)
Rainy Day Diaries // Episode 47
Jenipher Lyn and I discussed cardboarding, speaking, and finding your own learning style.
We also get into an argument about whether or not introverts and extroverts are real.
The SpeakerLab // Episode 347
Grant and I talk about unexpected TikTok virality, my first kids book, and how my speaking business changed during Covid.
(I was also on an earlier episode: The SpeakerLab // Episode 102)
Podcasting One-Handed // Episode 6
I have no idea what I said on this podcast because it was a long time ago,
but Ryan is a good friend and we always laugh a lot together so I’m sure it was good.
