About

Kyle is a writer living in Los Angeles. His work spans across media, including but not limited to theater, film, television, children's literature and educational content, and interactive experiences. He's worked as a writer and editor for Disney Publishing and Digital Media, freelanced in script coverage for Center Theatre Group, Theatre@Boston Court, and Sundance Theatre Lab, and provided dramaturgical support for various independent playwrights and screenwriters.  

2019 has already seen writing excitement, as Kyle headed to Creede, Colorado, in January to complete a new draft of his play OLD WOMAN SPRINGS ROAD at the HBMG Foundation Winter Playwrights Retreat. He’s also just finished a new draft of his pilot, PHYSIQUE!, and a first draft of his first novel.

In 2018 WOMEN IN FILM: A FANTASY OF OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND AND JOAN FONTAINE was featured in The Blank Theatre's Living Room Series and also recorded for podcast by the HBMG Foundation as part of its American Playbook project. YUCCA CORRIDOR was named finalist for the 2018 National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center. And AFTER SCHOOL SPECIAL was featured in La MaMa's Experiments 18: Parts for Meryl Streep.

In 2017 Kyle's screenplay WAR AND JIM was named finalist in the Arch & Bruce Brown Playwriting Competition. This is amusing because WAR AND JIM started as a play several years ago, but Kyle submitted a new screenplay adaptation because, well, they accepted screenplays. In a playwriting competition. Doesn't matter. Point is the script got to the finals of something.

Kyle's plays have been developed or performed by Great Plains Theatre Conference (2013 and 2017 PlayLabs playwright), The Lark, Theatricum Botanicum, Ensemble Studio Theatre/Los Angeles, Psychic Visions Theatre, Naked Angels Tuesdays@9 Los Angeles, and L.A.'s Homo-Centric, among other organizations.

He devised and produced two plays with his writing collective, Fell Swoop Playwrights. THE LAST TEMPTATION OF PAULA DEEN premiered at the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival, and THE MISS JULIE DREAM PROJECT premiered at the 2013 Hollywood Fringe and was remounted at Son of Semele Theater in Los Angeles in September of that year. His monologues were published in 2016's LGBTQ MONOLOGUES THAT ARE ACTUALLY FUNNY, edited by Alisha Gaddis. Kyle earned an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University a little while ago, and these days he's a member of The Dramatists Guild.
