Kyle Curtis


Kyle is a life-long resident of the Pacific Northwest. After the dispiriting re-election of George W. Bush in 2004, Kyle was a production intern for Thom Hartmann's morning local show on AM 620 KPOJ. Kyle's experience through this internship inspired him to pursue a Masters of Public Administration degree at Portland State's Hatfield School of Government.

As a grad student, Kyle interned at Congressman Blumenauer's district office, handling constituent services during the Great Health Care Debate of 2009- the epitome of "trial by fire." Barraged daily by a steady steam of lies and misinformation, Kyle recognized that truth and facts have little currency in the marketplace of political rhetoric. Kyle completed his degree in December 2010, with a focus on sustainable food policy.

The past couple of years he has been active in regional food issues, helping manage his neighborhood farmers market and serving on the steering committee of the Multnomah Food Initiative. Kyle lives in a tiny house in Northeast Portland with his wife and two daughters. When the zombie apocalypse hits, Kyle plans on living on a couple of acres on Sauvie Island with a couple of goats and chickens.
