Once he finished his theatre degree at the University of Southern California, he pursued that passion through a career in voice acting. Kyle can now be heard in anime, video games, cartoons, audiobooks, live action dubs, TV and radio commercials, industrial ads, and as even a talking toy plunger.
Otakon 2018 will be held August 10-12, 2018 at the Walter Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
