Kyle was born and raised on the island of O’ahu, Hawaii. He graduated from Punahou High School, and is currently majoring in Biochemical Engineering at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.

Kyle attended PFI’s Intermediate level course in Hawaii at the age of 15 in July of 2010. At the age of 16, Kyle was the youngest athlete in US Freediving history  to compete at Freedive Paradise. At the age of 17 he was selected to represent the United States for the team World Championships in Nice, France as on alternate on Team USA.

 

Now 19 years old, Kyle is the youngest athlete in US freediving history to set a national record. The previous US Men’s National Dynamic record of 175 meters was held by Ron Smith of Arizona, who set that distance at the aforementioned 2012 Team World Freediving Championships in France.

Kyle is the current Men's United States National record holder in Dynamic Apnea, the youngest in United States history.

 Kyle states, “It was such a significant experience for me to be a member of the team that represented the United States in the 2012 Freediving World Championships. I am honored to be able to represent Hawaii and the United States this year as a primary member of the national team.”
