Kyle-Steven Porter

Artist, writer, DJ, podcaster, performer




Greetings. I'm Kyle.

Depending on where we met, you likely only got a piece of who I am. Kyle-Steven Porter is my 9-5, academic and professional self. That's the name you'll find attached to my writing, my LinkedIn, my resume and my snail mail. KSP is the version I've found myself in a lot of  nonprofit and community oriented spaces. If you met me during my time with Geeks OUT, at the PAX Conventions, or in my current work at Out in Tech, you may have met me as KSP. Kyle Danger is who I am as an artist - this website's first iteration was called The Art of Kyle Danger. DJ Kyle Danger is who will get you shaking your ass on the dance floor. Physical business cards are a smidge passé and not terribly eco-friendly, but if you wind up with one, it'll likely have Kyle Danger's name at the top.

All of this is to suggest not that I have multiple personalities, but rather, multiple interests and talents - and I've gotten less humble about the fact that I'm pretty damn good at all of them. You might not think of one person for all of your artistic and creative needs - but that's only because you haven't asked me.

So poke around, explore some of my work, and if any of it speaks to you and compels you to want to commission something - let's have a kiki.

(I wanted to write KyKy but depending on your level of pop culture knowledge, that could have a very different connotation...and I don't think I'd use this site to advertise such services.)
