About Kyle

My career began in Louisiana designing Flash and 3D animation, and I’ve arrived as an all around UX designer working in Texas & California.

I wonder what’s next...


Born in Lafayette and raised in Baton Rouge where I attended LSU and graduated from ULL in 3D animation. I visit New Orleans as much as possible and am a Tiger fan. I will always choose Cajun food over Creole.

I moved to Austin in 2003 with no job and started a web design firm. I met my lovely wife one year later and we’ve grown our businesses and lives together in ATX. We now live in the area of “Dirty Six” in downtown. I've become a BBQ and taco snob.

I first travelled to Cali in 2010 for a Joomla convention. A year and half later I was hired by eBay to head up the UX for a massive analytics portal. After that I moved on to a Sears analytics team also in CA. Something tells me I’ll be back...
