Kyle Bellingar | “Can’t Figure it Out? Be a Child”

Kyle Bellingar Ignite OKC 6 Speaker

I moved to OKC from Florida in 2013 after finishing my bachelor’s degree for a project management position with AT&T. After taking a few months off to travel at the beginning of 2015, I began as a Senior Performance Analyst for the State of Oklahoma (Office of Management and Enterprise Services). I love traveling, and most of my time outside work is spent with my German Shepherd, Zoe, or learning something new. I’m passionate about lifelong learning, solving problems as best as I can, and making the world a better place.
