Working as a developer, Kiel has maintained a small number of blogs to discuss his progress professionally as well as his side-projects in music.

Kiel is an avid fan of Wordpress, and uses it extensively for his own personal websites and blogs. He enjoys staying up-to-date on the latest Wordpress plugins and updates. Though he enjoys other content management systems, Wordpress is his preferred CMS application.

In 2010, Kiel left his official work in the technology world to serve in the United States Army. Although his full-time occupation changed, he continued to freelance as a developer.

Having spent time at multiple military posts and in Afghanistan, Kiel is excited to have returned to the world of technology and now works as C# developer for a healthcare software start-up. He views technology and writing as two of his primary passions in life, and would like to combine them into a profitable profession. He believes he can be an effective writer and gain valuable experience by writing on a number of subjects for a variety of customers.
