The thing about UDP jokes is I don’t care if you get them or not.
Kyle is your friendly neighborhood all-around-everything-doer. By day, he's a front-end Drupal developer working on new themes and features for our Open Enterprise platform. In Kyle's spare time, he's a startup community evangelist. He's a Startup Weekend facilitator, Startup Digest curator, and runs a ton of events in Dallas, ranging from Startup Weekend to Lean Startup Machine and the occasional hackathon when he gets the chance.
Co-founded a non-profit in Denton, Texas called TechMill, a collective of volunteers who support and promote the local tech startup community.
Started a company called DrawAttention that he built in 10 hours because of a Facebook post. It was somewhat successful, and by successful he means they were on Gizmodo and Cool Hunting.
Kyle is a reformed IT guy, moving from IT support and into web development, and he couldn't be happier. He has a BA in Information Technology with a Network Security concentration from The University of North Texas.
Facts you don't really need (or want) to know
Party Trick: I can tie knots in cherry stems using my tongue, and stack the <censored> out of things. I even keep a Facebook album of all the things I stack.
Guiltiest pleasure: I like watching Daredevel (Affleck, not Netflix). All comic book movies, no matter how bad they might be to the general public. There's just something I enjoy about taking a thing in print and making it real-life.
Pick your poison: If you can stick a tiny umbrella in it, it's my drink
Voted most likely to: Swear like a pirate and be found in a coffee shop.
