About Me

Hi I'm Kyle Johnson.  👋🏻

I am engineer, podcaster, photographer and occasional writer splitting time in Seattle, WA and Indio, CA.

I am a West coast transplant having grown up in a small village of about 700 people in Northwest Iowa. I often come off as shy or even intimidating to some but 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 in 2008. With the addition of my dog Breezy have been far more active and getting out more.

Professional

I hosted a podcast series with friend and former colleague Mike Sheehan called The Coffee & Code Cast. The show ran October of 2017 through June of 2021 and was published roughly weekly.

I am currently the Vice President of Technology at Prep Sportswear, a small company that produces high quality one off school and sports related products on demand shipped direct to consumer. I previously spent time as Director of Engineering at Quotewizard now owned by Lending Tree working on various projects including an ad platform and an custom CRM.

Although I am not active on social media platforms you can find my posts there or subscribe to email posts. All the various places to find me are listed here.
