A Little About Me

headshot

Kyle Fordrung is a freelance videographer, editor and multimedia designer with a penchant for the fantastical.

He was born in Poughkeepsie, NY, on the banks of the Hudson River, but spent most of his life in the Adirondack region of upstate New York, where he quickly developed an affinity for the woods and mountains.

After high school, Kyle decided that pizza delivery was not his true calling, and was accepted to SUNY Fredonia where he earned two Bachelor’s Degrees in Digital Film Production and English Literature. When not making videos or designing websites, Kyle can be found hiking, snowboarding, singing in Irish Gaelic (seriously), and swinging his sword in his medieval reenactment society.

He currently lives in Utah with his wife, Arvilla, their shoe-eating dog Riley, and a beautiful baby daughter named Avoreen.
