Kyle was born and raised in rural Ontario where he fell in love with the outdoors early on. He studied cooking in Ottawa before going back to school for creative writing. He earned a BSc in Linguistics from UVic while planting trees during the summer. By 2018, he graduated from UBC with an MSc in Audiology, with a special interest in perception. His thesis explored neural hearing losses in infants. He was the Lead Public Health Audiologist in North East BC before moving to Boreal Clinic. When Kyle isn't helping with communication, you can find him snowboarding, making sourdough, or exploring with his partner Helena.
