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. He is teaching a religious studies class at Manhattan College and running the writing center at Union Theological Seminary. He is also a Parish Ministry Fellow at the Episcopal Church of St. Luke-in-the-Fields.
He recently moved to New York City with his spouse, Verena. He loves cooking, beer, Anglican liturgy and art, Byzantine/Syriac/Ethiopian liturgy and art, Javanese textiles, sudoku, Germany, sci-fi, and starting poems he never finishes. The friend who introduced him to his wife warned her, “The thing you have to understand about Kyle is that he takes Hegel very seriously, but he takes Star Trek just as seriously,” which is perfect nonsense. He takes Star Trek way more seriously than Hegel.
He no longer has the beard with which he is pictured above and has also gotten a haircut. But he still wears batik.
