Kyle is definitely our artistic mind out here at Branson Zipline (see some of his early pieces above). With a wealth of knowledge, Kyle is sure to know the answer to any of your outdoor questions. He grew up in Springfield, MO and was the oldest of three children. Now he is currently living with his family in Billings, MO. This January is going to be quite exciting for Kyle and his family as they are expecting to add two twin girls to the mix! Whether he is sharing stories about his sweetheart & four daughters or talking about his most current artwork he entertains everyone. Kyle is a fantastic storyteller and is always sure to create a great experience for every guest on his tour.
Originally Kyle worked with 11-17 year olds at Camp Arrow Head, a Boy Scouts camp in Marshfield, Mo. There he taught the scouts how to tie knots, belay, repel, climb, and navigate through a challenge course. Kyle enjoyed working with the boy scouts and found it very rewarding, but was excited to take on a full time outdoor job. So he became a member of our team in the Spring of 2010 and is a fantastic leader. He has lots of awesome stories from his time working with the boy scouts but believes that making sure 12 adults are safe and secure while at Wolfe Creek Preserve is easier than keeping track of 30 boys! Kyle has been an intrical part to our team and we are thankful for his ability to mix the perfect amount of adventure with safety. You’ll enjoy you tour with Kyle because he will always be there to make sure your experience is safe and memorable.
Q & A with Kyle:
What do you like about working at Branson Zipline? Being outside, working with people and all the different weather conditions. No day is the same.
Best time to zipline? Anytime is a good time to zip but there are definitely best times. I would have to say right before summer and right after summer. Temp wise it is kind of cooling off or just starting to warm up. Also, the kids are in school!
Best advice for a new ziplier? Enjoy it and have fun, Don’t touch your gear or the cable.
What do you hope to be doing in five years? I’d like to be somewhere in the outdoor industry. Teaching people to climb, kayak, or to simply enjoy being outdoors as much as I do. I could see myself working for a company that builds ziplines/ropes courses/challenge courses. Basically, something that keeps me outdoors and active.
