Hey folks! It’s time for another edition of Nerds Behind Credit Karma. Last month, we introduced you to Katrina, our superstar Human Resources Coordinator. Today you get to meet Kyle, one of our quirky Business Analysts.
Kyle has been doing the P90X workout for years and has gone through the entire program a few times. He likes to wake up early and workout on his back patio because it gives him a boost of energy for the rest of the day. Aside from being an all-around healthy guy, Kyle is also a connoisseur of coffee and won’t hesitate to let you know that you’re going to the wrong coffee shop in town.
