I'm currently a senior product designer at Product Hunt, where we're building the best place to launch, learn, and geek out about all kinds of products.
I also help folks find adventure at The Outbound Collective, take fun photos, and enjoy lending my product expertise to interesting startups.
Get in touch at.
You'll often find me in the mountains, taking photos, running long distances, or finding unique and adventurous places to travel (and working remotely).
My focus is in product design, product strategy, and UX/UI across web and mobile. I've cultivated a wide supplementary skill-set through work with early-stage startups, including significant experience with SEO, copywriting, social media strategy, and content production. I also code a bit (and love #nocode).

"The influx of new, high-earning renters combined with the surge in home buying during 2020 has created an almost untenable situation. In most places, there’s both a lack of rental inventory AND the costs have increased significantly, creating a perfect storm of housing and labor issues."
"The next few years will represent a unique opportunity for smaller cities to re-invent themselves and develop programs to make themselves more attractive to remote workers"
"In a little over six months, they've rolled up many of the major players in the outdoor media space, as well as a cadre of platforms in related spaces"
"The next few years will be a tremendous opportunity for small towns to reshape themselves as optimal locales for remote work."
"Will worker migration + remote hiring contribute to a changing face of Middle America?"

"Kyle is comfortable with the entire product development lifecycle, sketching up wireframes all the way to digging into the codebase and implementing front end code directly. This makes it incredibly easy to integrate Kyle into an engineering organization."
"Kyle is a super talented designer, photographer, and developer. He helped with everything from branding to designing our site to writing custom HTML + CSS. I highly recommend working with Kyle if you have the opportunity."
"Kyle's design and UX expertise are second to none...I was always impressed by Kyle's ability to generate ideas and hypotheses at a strategic level, then quickly execute them with proven results. Kyle also demonstrated strong leadership abilities to the rest of the company by always re-centering the discussion back to the customer's root problem."
