Kyle completed his co-op doing web development in the programming department at Real Estate Webmasters in Nanaimo, B.C. Real Estate Webmasters is the world's largest provider of custom web development and technology solutions in the real estate industry.

Kyle was responsible for working directly with clients to achieve success with their online presence and create tools for their business needs.
