If it involves any sort of pixel, frame, or sound wave, Kyle can tame it, saddle it, and then make it prance around like a pony at a little girl’s birthday.
He’s a multi-faceted creative director that serves as the Signal Factory creative foundation. Quick with an awful GOONIES reference, an aspiring pilot, and a bit of a camera snob, Kyle is a creative renaissance man. His experience in design and animation, 3D, traditional art, cinematography, web, and interactive development keeps Signal Factory on the creative forefront – and has made him the unrelenting creative force at Signal Factory.

Making sure all of the Signal Factory trains run on time is no easy task, especially when the train is carrying a bunch of creatives trying to re-design the train station. But don’t let the hair fool you, Mark helps Signal Factory run like a Swiss watch inside a German train station: absolutely flawlessly.
With client relationships deep-seated in the television industry from a career that includes senior positions with Turner Broadcasting, the Travel Channel and TV Guide, Mark has extensive experience in sales distribution, client relations, marketing and network promotions, and strategic planning. He is a past member of the Board of Directors of the Cable Television & Telecommunications Association of New York, and a past board member of the Texas and New England Chapters of the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing. He is also a former voting member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Translation: he’s a kind of a badass. But the kind of badass that could, at any time, whip out a vintage Fender Strat and shred a whole Stones tune.
