Hey, I'm Kyle Loomis.

I'm the founder of Spotlight. I was previously a Senior Data Engineer at dv01, a fintech startup in the securitization space. I'm originally from Minnesota, but I've lived in NYC, Boston, and most recently Miami.

As the world is becoming over-stimulating, I try to do things which help me slow down and think deeply, such as reading, zen meditation, and hot yoga.
