Kyle grew up in New Orleans and following graduation from Louisiana State University, headed to Los Angeles to pursue his life-long dream of filmmaking. Starting from the bottom, Kyle took any film job that came his way until a job in the editing department of The New Monkees made him realize that editing would be his niche. From that point on, he set to learning the craft and elevating his title with each successive project. After nine years Kyle counted himself among the lucky few to have worked on hit TV shows like ABC’s The Wonder Years, CBS’s McGyver, and HBO’s Dream On, but alas, he felt drawn back to New Orleans. Torn between a budding filmmaking career in LA and an undying love for his hometown in Louisiana, Kyle decided to have his cake and eat it too.

Armed with the knowledge and skills he had honed in Hollywood, Kyle set out to create a unique production and post-production environment in New Orleans. He would build 3 successful ventures Storyville, Maison and now Delicious on the premise that New Orleans, with all its food, architecture and culture, was as good a place to work as any. And they did, starting with commercials, features, and documentaries and then network TV and sporting events. These days the film industry is booming in New Orleans and Kyle is part of it.

Kyle is a storyteller and he is equally talented in long or short form. He would love to help you tell your story.
