Who is Kyle Rogan?
I am a storyteller, singer, writer, musician, friend, photographer, actor, editor, videographer, and lifelong adventurer.
For several years I was working a desk job as the “Jim Halpert” of the office, trying to keep myself entertained by making my co-workers laugh and/or drive them crazy. I was very good at it. During that time, I had a “side-hustle” going on as a singer-songwriter and released a few records and music videos. I had gotten my degrees in Film Studies and Acting, so I tried to do as much creative stuff in my free time as I could. But, as it often goes, life got pretty draining.
I had a good friend ask me, “Kyle, what do you want?” And honestly it was incredibly difficult to answer. I listed several things struggling to figure out what I could see myself doing for the rest of my life, until he just said, “Do it all.”
And that’s when it hit me. I’m not designed to do one type of work the rest of my life. I’ve got a lot going on inside this brain of mine and it’s definitely not meant to sit behind a desk. And over the course of a few months, I had other close friends tell me the same thing. After a while, I had an incredibly original thought: “What if I could make a living off doing what I love?”
Ground-breaking. I know.
So I left my day job (leaving my co-workers about a hundred mp3s of me making weird sounds so that they’d miss me) and ventured into the world of building….
To be honest, I’m still figuring it out. But that’s part of the adventure, right?
