Before starting at Boochcraft, Kyle was involved in different areas of research as a biochemist; including synthetic organic chemistry and glycobiology. While obtaining a Masters in Biochemistry from the University of Maryland, Kyle also worked at a winery where he increased his appreciation and understanding of wine, its production and further refined his palate. A year after graduating from graduate school, Kyle decided to pack up and move west; where he was lucky enough to connect with Boochcraft. Since then, he has worked at Boochcraft as a scientist in the quality department using his understanding of chemistry and microbiology. More recently Kyle has moved into the Research & Development department at Boochcraft where he is able to leverage his passion for flavors, cooking and baking in flavor development and process improvement at Boochcraft.
