Kyle Born enjoys writing in an engaging way as if you were having a conversation with him. He specializes in storytelling and isn’t afraid of asking the hard questions such as, “Where is your bathroom? I really need to go.” Kyle has held a variety of job titles through the years: radio announcer, voice actor, English teacher, delivery driver, missionary, wedding DJ, comedian and several other things that he may have forgotten because his memory isn’t always the best which is why he writes things down. Kyle is from Abbotsford, B.C., but now lives in Cranbrook, B.C. with his super-amazing wife, Becky. They don’t have any pets because Kyle has allergies but if he sees you walking your dog he will stop and pet it because dogs are cool.
