At the University of Iowa, Lyle majored in Computer Science, but his most prized possession was a key to the school's Electronic Music Studios. With his home studio he has produced music and provided sound design for film, radio, and podcasts. Lyle's current musical obsession involves integrating electric guitar signals into his modular synthesizer. He is a software developer by trade and finds it fulfilling to use that skill to help build better healthcare systems. He lives in an old house in Iowa next to the Mississippi River with his wife and their retired racing greyhound, Yeti.
