Kyle, Graphic and Web Design
Kyle has spent most of his life promising the people around him that someday he will grow up... just not right now. When he's not developing web games and creating content for mindyourmind you can find him playing board games or building a fort out of couch cushions and watching cartoons and scary movies. Having first joined the crew in 2005 and now back in 2018, he is the OG mindyourmind hipster who was totally into them before they got cool.
