WHO I AM

KYLE C MURPHY

INNOVATOR | PROFESSOR | MISFIT

KYLE C MURPHY

Innovation Catalyst | Chasm Crosser

Hello!

I am a true left brain/right brain thinker. My creative side is manifested as an artist (traditional, advertising/branding and UI/UX), technology and business model innovator, entrepreneur, and general misfit. My analytical side receives heavy use as a professor, behavioral economist and C-level executive.

A social introvert, I live for travel, food and learning. I reside in Palos Verdes with my lovely wife, a clowder of cats and epic surfing within walking distance.
