Kyle is using the Drupal CMS for a project called TourSheet.com. TourSheet.com has coined the term social placemarking, where people share and tag geographic things of interest to discover new locations and activities. When people group together sharing their place-based knowledge, values, and experiences electronically through social placemarks they can access thousands of hours of other people’s contributions and engage in local forums related to hyper-community interests.
In December 2006, he started organizing the Chicago Drupal Meet Up Group (CDMUG) to develop a local support user group for open source developers. The group currently has 140+ members and draws 15 members (max limit of meeting space), on average, each monthly meet up.
Kyle is also a investor of an eco-friendly cleaning chemical called Corte Clean. He possesses an inveterate passion for innovation that fuels his hunger, commitment and resilience towards entrepreneurship.
