Hi, I'm Kyle


Hi, I'm Kyle



People often ask what I've been up to...

This is what I'm doing now:

(This is a Now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too!)

  • 576 days sober (from alcohol) as I write this.

    • I don’t keep track anymore, but there’s a handy app that’s informational called Nomo. I also use it for other habits!

    • One of my strategies this year has been to identify “blockers” in my life. Habits that inhibit happiness or growth in some way.

      • One of them is that I’ve decided to eliminate are dating apps, as I believe they allow me to avoid socialising by getting a small hit of perceived interaction.

  • I’ve worked at Netflix for a year and a half, and around this time two years ago was when I began my planned 1 year “Mini Retirement” that lasted 9 months.

    • During that time I made a small fortune on cryptocurrency, wrote a novel (still need to edit and publish), and learned how to code (Javascript, Swift, and the basics of several others).

    • I believe this time off contributed to my willingness and ability to excel in my current position, and has made me a much better human in general. But it’s really important to disconnect, which is why I’m taking the next two weeks off.

  • Currently reading:

    • Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan (70% through book 9)

    • Calm- School of Life

      • I highly recommend ANYTHING you can buy at the School of Life, especially On Confidence and How to Find Love.

  • Current Exercise Routine:

    • Yoga 2ish days per week, morning workouts using Fitbod App

  • Current Diet:

    • “Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly Vegetables” - Michael Pollan

      • I am using MyFitnessPal to monitor calorie intake and macros for the time being.

      • 40% Protein, 40% Fat, 20% Carbohydrates

    • Intermittent Fasting 3-4 days per week.

      • Effective caloric restriction, with the added benefits of lower blood pressure, heart rate, and it helps to repair my relationship with food.

  • Currently learning:

    • Passive

      • Nothing for the moment

    • Skill-Based

      • Guitar

        • Practicing intermittently.

          • NOTE TO SELF: If you have not committed to attempting daily practice by the next update, you have failed yourself

            • UPDATE: I have failed myself. I will do better.

            • UPDATE 2: I am still failing.

    • Active/Overtly Physical

      • Yoga. I’ve been doing yoga for about 8 years and each time I learn something new about myself. I’m currently looking for an active skill to learn, but for the time being I’m focusing on yoga.

  • Side Projects:

    • None at the moment. All of my Side Projects are more like sub-projects of my work with Netflix.

  • Recent Travel (since last update):

    • Bergen, Norway

    Upcoming Travel:

    • New York, USA - August 15-16

    • Minneapolis, USA - August 16-17
