    Default Meet The Staff: Kyle Matthews / poetic_folly


    You may have read yesterday about Cody Overcash, one of ModMyi.com's founders. Well, lets learn about the other!




    Logan - Tell us a little about yourself. Your age, location, education, and what you want to be when you grow up?

    Kyle - My name is Kyle Matthews. I'm just a few short weeks from 30, and have lived in Tampa the past 5 or 6 years, although I still think of Seattle as home. I went to college a few years before I got bored with it and decided the internet was it for me. When I grow up I'd like to keep learning new things and seeing new sights, helping folks along the way.

    Logan - How'd you first get involved with the ModMyi.com community? How long have you been apart of MMi?

    Kyle - I got involved when Cody Overcash and I decided we wanted to be able to write off our purchases of Apple's nifty new phone. This whole site was created to justify two geeks' purchase of $600 phones.

    Logan - What devices do you own? Is their one can't wait to get!

    Kyle - When it comes to iDevices, I have one of each. Well, I sold my original iPhone a while back and am looking for a new one to frame now.

    Logan - What Cydia/Apple tweaks/applications can you not live without?

    Kyle - MyWi, InfiniFolders, CyDelete, 1Password, Camera+, Facebook, Twitter, and of course the best app, ModMyi.app.

    Logan - What do you think of the new iOS5 and iPhone 4S?

    Kyle - Love the 4S's camera and speed increases, really hate the battery life. Hoping Apple's next big innovation is not a device, but a battery. iOS5 is great and continues to pull thoughts from it's competitors and the jailbreak world, and they've of course integrated it smoothly into a solid package. Siri is great, but I think I'm still faster than she is so I haven't been using her much.

    Logan - If you could be any super hero who would it be and why?

    Kyle - Well, growing up I always thought Gambit was the coolest XMan. Dunno quite why - I guess 52 weapons in a box of cards seems nifty.

    Logan - Anything else you'd like for us to know?

    Kyle - I'm married to a hottie (note from Logan: he is not lying see the picture ) named Robyn, and have had 3 sons, although we lost two in 2010 (see thematthewsstory.com). Charley, our 20 month old, is our cool little guy continuing to meet the world these days. Robyn and I have a non-profit called Because of Ezra which raises awareness and funds for research into beating neuroblastoma, a children's cancer.

    I'm an avid guitar player and singer/songwriter who toured a bit but never made it big when I was younger. The last time I went out to Denver to hang with Cody he got me hooked on fast cars, and Robyn is wonderfully ticked off thrilled with that new focus.



    Now you've met both the founders of ModMyi.com! Tune in tomorrow as we meet more of the MMi crew...

    Aw, that's one of the saddest stories I've ever read. Now I feel totally bad about bothering you with all my stupid questions during that time, Kyle. Thanks for all the help over the years.

    I had cancer (A.L.L) at 16, I was on the children's ward, I also did fundraising.
    I raised just over 20,000 grand, got the ward a brand new kitchen and opened the new ward with my best mate and Dr Who (uk series)
    Now 24 years old and all clear, not a day goes by without thinking of everyone who didn't make it RIP x

    It would be best to direct that question to the theme section than in an introduction thread for staff.

    Skinning / Themes Discussion Post question there to get help with that.
