Starting his career working at Sony Music and then in management at The Firm in Beverly Hills (with many top acts such as Linkin Park, The Dixie Chicks, Snoop Dogg, Tears For Fears, Miranda Lambert and Tom Morello), Kyle quickly realized that he'd rather be "in" the band instead of working "for" the band.  So he jumped ship from the business to the creative side of town.

After working for a record producer / film composer, Kyle then attended the UCLA Extension Film Scoring Program where he had tremendous access to many of the industry's great composers, including Christopher Young,  Michael Giacchino, John Powel, Hans Zimmer, Mychael Danna, Mark Isham, Patrick Doyle, + Alexandre Desplat.

Since 2007, Kyle has been creating original music for film, television, DJ's, and all multi-media platforms (web, cell phones, apps) and playing gigs around Los Angeles on percussion, drums, and saxophone with the live hip-hop act Bradley Keys + Infinite, the roots folk-rock trios of Mason Reed and D. Henry Fenton, and the reggae/dub outfit Jupiter's Moon.

Kyle currently serves as the Musical Director at Bridges Academy in Studio City, California.

Kyle is a member of The Society of Composers + Lyricists and BMI.
