My name is Kiel, which is Kyle opposed to Keil. You might think it's strange, cool, or possibly rather uninteresting. I happen to think it's pretty rad. I still feel new to Rochester despite living here for a few years. I love exploring what this city has to offer.

I've recently been working on a start up to revitalize the local music scene here in Rochester. If you're interested in that kind of thing and want to be involved let me know.
Seeing as this is what it is, and no one likes to "brag" about what they're good at, here goes my little spiel: I am a fairly intelligent person and I believe that I am pretty good at most things I do. I often look at myself as a jack-of-all-trades, but mostly because I have the ambition to know a little about most everything. You never know when obscure information will come in handy (or be rather amusing).
I believe passion in a very important quality to have. I happen to have many thus far and am always looking to explore possibilities of new ones. The first that comes to mind is food. I love it all. Cooking, growing, exploring, eating and drinking new experiences whenever I can. I have been in and out of restaurants since I was 14 and have a lot to show for it.
I love to learn new things, this is my greatest passion in life. If you can teach me something new, we will get along very well. I dabble in many mediums of art including: painting, drawing, sculpting, needlework, jewelry making (including chain/metalwork). I enjoy being active outdoors and sports like soccer, basketball, racquetball, cycling, hiking and much more. I want to find someone to share these activities with.
Lately, people have noticed my winter beard is gone, but still speckled red.
My favorite movies include: The Pickpocket, 13 Monkeys, Moulin Rouge, Wrath of Khan, Serenity, Mirror Mask, City of lost children. Wes Anderson films any day of the week, I like quirky unpredictable movies alongside science fiction.
Shows: Arrested Development, Firefly, Parks and Rec, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, Supernatural, Star Trek and more. I don't watch too much cable but a netflix spree is a nice reward. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is pretty fantastic. Bob's Burgers is a new favorite mostly because Tina is amazing.
Music: David Byrne, David Bowie, Tom Waits, 60's 70's 80's classic rock, Tool , Florence and the Machine, Metric, Saint Seneca, Hank and Cupcakes. Feist, My tastes are all over the place. I listen to a lot of Indie on Songza but I honestly couldn't tell you most of the bands names despite listening for hours.I have recently started look more into some true American roots in folk music. I've been jumping in to the local music scene here and am working on ways to help it thrive.
Food: While eating out, I tend to like cuisine that I cannot easily prepare myself. I look to restaurants on occasion for inspiration in my own cooking. I love French, Thai, and Korean. Basically, anything that is new and exciting to try. I love craft beers and fine wines but price does not always equate quality! Looking for suggestions about great beers to try? I would love to make one.
