My name is Kyle, and I am a 24 year old from Columbia, Missouri. I graduated from Truman State University with honors in Computer Science, and I am currently serving in the US Peace Corps as an Information Technology volunteer in the Republic of Armenia.
At Truman State, I was very actively involved in several organizations, including Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, Phi Beta Lambda business fraternity, and Omicron Delta Kappa honors fraternity. As part of my commitment to these organizations, I regularly participated in service projects, which have been my principle inspiration for joining the Peace Corps. My biggest commitments were through Pi Kappa Phi and its philanthropy, Push America, which “builds leaders of tomorrow by supporting people with disabilities today”. Through Push America, I participated in several awareness, development, and fundraising projects, including construction of several ramps for people with disabilities in the Kirksville area. Also, in the summer of 2004 I was a member of the Build America team, where I worked at six camps for people with disabilities around the country. Along with physical construction projects, I raised money (the most of our team of 20) and awareness for this great cause.
Aside from my commitment to service, I enjoy travelling and skiing. I have visited London, Rome, Vienna, and Bankok, and hope to see a lot more of the world through my Peace Corps experience. Professionally, I have worked with computers, the Internet and web programming for over 10 years, including an internship with Boeing and 4 years at Truman State’s IT Services. I plan on continuing my role with IT development after my service in the Peace Corps.
