Kyle received his Ph.D. with distinction in theology from the University of Chicago Divinity School and having followed his spouse to New York City, is now a reluctant Manhattanite and a Visiting Research Scholar at the Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life at Columbia University. He is also a postulant for the priesthood in the Episcopal Church and seminarian at the Church of the Transfiguration.
He no longer has the beard with which he is pictured above and has also gotten a haircut. But he remains an enthusiast for Javanese textiles.
