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!)

  • Alive and well in Amsterdam, NL. It’s sunny and cool right now, but it’s warm enough for every patio in town to be packed full of people.

  • 1 whole year sober (from alcohol) as I write this.

    • I have decided to stay sober. The level of fun I had in the last weeks of the year was proof enough for me that alcohol does not add any value to my time. When I was younger and still discovering myself (and considerably more self conscious) it acted as a nice buffer between my insecurities and acted as a social lubricant. I don’t need that anymore.

    • A strange psychological tweak happened because of this decision to stay sober. Before there was always a sort of… “Time Limit” to my sobriety. Now it’s just… life. And when it stopped being a decision I was making everyday and became a simple fact of life, all of the brain chatter about it disappeared.

  • Still working for Netflix. Still loving it. My region is blowing up and we’re in a constant and worthwhile struggle to stay ahead of the work.

  • Currently reading:

    • Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan (about 20 pages from the end of book 8!!!)

      • Books 5-7 are a snooze, book 8 picks up and has been thoroughly enjoyable

  • Current Exercise Routine:

    • Joined OneFit here in Amsterdam. They have an incredible collection of Yoga studios and I’ve been going pretty much daily.

      • As a minor update to this, I use this primarily just for yoga. It’s great for it.

    • Using FitBod app still, but since I started with OneFit my routine has been pretty heavily yoga.

  • Currently learning:

    • Started Dutch lessons at work (4 lessons in), secretly missing French (I’m in France as I write this).

    • Bought a year of Masterclass, but I’ve yet to really take advantage of it…

    • Guitar

      • Started using a thumb pick, which is neat and allows me to strum while doing some fingerpicking.

  • Side Projects:

    • I should say I’ve been working on Alex is Awake (my first novel), but it’s been nearly 10 months since I really picked it up. My life has changed and this is not my immediate priority any longer.

  • Recent Travel:

    • Paris, France

      • I’m here as I write this and I love this city more each time I come. Strangely, each time I come I’m drawn further and further away from the city center.

    • Cardiff, Wales

      • Cardiff is… strange. I almost got thrust into 3 fights by three separate angry gentlemen, all before 20.00! I ended up calling it a night at 22.30 because I saw a guy get stabbed by a broken beer bottle. Then, on my way out of town my shoes were stolen FROM THE SECURITY LINE AT THE AIRPORT.

    • Oslo, Norway

      • Spontaneous weekend spent chasing the northern lights, we saw a cruise ship evacuated and mingled with Olympic biathletes from a bunch of different countries.

  • Upcoming Travel:

    • Cape Town, South Africa - May 2-8

    • LA, USA - June 6-9

    • Denver, USA - Hopefully June 20-23
