Kyle grew up in Coaldale, Alta., where he was very active playing football, volleyball and basketball. He graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2012, and moved to Calgary shortly after for an internship. He holds a Bachelor of Fine arts in new Media and is currently employed as an operations manager for Vivint – a security and home automation company.
