KyleInstallation SpecialistKyle is our lead installer and working on becoming an installation manager to share his knowledge with how to think on your feet while in the field and your environment is varied and is many times different than what was anticipated. Hard to tell with his quiet demeanor, but Kyle has a quick wit and a very dry sense of humor, so don’t be surprised when he throws out a “zinger” that surprises you and makes you literally LOL. In his free time, Kyle is a talented ceramics artist who has taught classes and even has his own turntable and kiln.
