About me 
Kyle works as the Membership Engagement Manager for Volunteer Operations in support of TU's 36 state councils and nearly 400 local chapters across the country. Kyle joined TU in January 2015 as Membership Engagement Manager, and prior to that he worked in communications and development for one of Oregon's non-profit, community-based watershed councils. Kyle serves as the staff liaison for TU's flagship grassroots grants program, Embrace-A-Stream, and as the TU point of contact for the Fly Fishing Film Tour. Prior to joining TU as a staff member, he was actively involved as a grassroots volunteer where he founded the Blueback Chapter #196 in Corvallis, OR and served as Oregon's NLC representative. Kyle holds a bachelor of environmental science from Washington State University, a master of public administration from Columbia University, and a law degree from the University of Oregon. When he's not helping TU's grassroots volunteers, he enjoys reading, steelhead fishing, chasing elk with a bow, trail running, backcountry skiing, and bird hunting with his pudelpointer, Sawyer.
