  • A lifelong gamer, Kyle learned early on that fantasy RPGs and competitive strategy games were his forte. His all-nighters have consisted of the likes of "World of Warcraft," "Dark Souls," and "League of Legends."
  • After graduating college, Kyle and his colleagues from Michigan State University presented a research paper at the International Conference of Quality Inquiry at the University of Illinois. It detailed how specific mechanics from games like "Super Mario Odyssey" translate well into educational settings.
