Welcome aboard this is aimed at providing a little more detail about me. My name is Kyle Paul Johnson and I’m a web developer or software engineer with a good eye for design and a passion for good UI.  I am pseudo designer, fitness enthusiast and amateur photographer. I live and work in the beautiful downtown Seattle area.  I work for lead a small engineering team for Quote Wizard, a company that buys and sells insurance leads.

Like most people in Seattle it seems, I am a transplant. I grew up in the great plains of the Midwest in a small village of about 700 people.  I  generally come off as a shy, or quiet person when I first meet people which is true.  I tend to open up to people a lot more as I get to know them better.

I love spending time with friends and family, talking tech, snapping photographs, running, cycling, hiking and playing or watching most sports. I have become a lover of pretty much all things outdoors since moving to the Pacific Northwest, and recently with the addition of my dog Breezy have been far more active and getting out more.

I have competed and completed a number of races both running and cycling, and I continue to be an active runner, hiker, and cyclist.

Fitness & Weight Loss

Over the past seven years I have managed to lose and keep off (for the most part) around 65 pounds.  In 2007 I started on a journey down the road of self betterment, and getting my health under control. Over the course of the next 3 years I lost a total of 65 lbs through very simple life changes.  I tend to get asked a lot about how I did it, so I wrote a lengthy post about the journey that I set out on and that continues on today.
