Alumni Spotlight: Kyle Blackwell '13

Kyle Blackwell '13 - more affectionately known to his teammates as “Birdman” - has been busy in the years since graduation. After working in DC for a couple of years, he hit the road for across the pond. After riding a bike through Italy, Switzerland, Germany, France, Belgium, and the UK, Kyle opted for a more conventional method of travel: he flew to Rwanda and worked for a non-profit business accelerator. He took advantage of the opportunity to expand his travel horizons even further and visited Uganda and the Congo, eventually winding up in Colombia, where he worked as an English teacher while finding time to visit Ecuador as well. Kyle's now headed to Spain to work on obtaining an MBA. Birdman also holds the distinction of possibly being the tallest player ever to suit up for Tribe Hockey.
