Kyle received his Bachelors of Architecture from Penn State University in 2013 and went on to complete a Masters of Environmental Sciences in downtown Manhattan at the Center for Architecture Science and Ecology (part of Rensselaer Polytechnic University). Kyle is a registered Architect and CAD/3D Design Specialist. "A good carpenter naturally develops into an architect, and the best architect is he who knows the trade. It is a profession which requires not only the artistic taste, but a technical knowledge of details, of how practically to carry out the work, how to superintend construction, and what the different methods are for doing things." -J.S. Zerbe
