Then B-rad got hold of my CV and he introduced me to SharePoint… the rest is history. Here I am today.

Throughout Kyle’s life, he has always been drawn towards computers. Their intricate and complex components fascinated him; he would take them apart, and then try and put them back together. The internet was an especially interesting place that was filled with a variety of information and strange communities. At 14 years of age, he studied a 1000 page manual on Java 2, to write games on Linux because he wasn’t as cool as the other kids. With the help and support from his two brothers Kyle really dived into software development.
In his early 20’s after some forays into other areas of study, Kyle finally settled on completing a certificate in graphic design, which he used as a springboard to enter the exciting world of web development.
