Throughout the years, Kyle has directed a handful of shows. While in school he was a part of four 24 Hour Play Festivals and four 10 Minute Play Festivals. His senior thesis for Carson-Newman University was to design, produce, create, and direct Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. After designing every portion of the show, he had his hand in building sets, hanging lights, creating costumes, and finding props to help tell the famous story.

The 10 Minute and 24 Play Festivals gave Kyle an amazing opportunity to explore subjects such as mental illness, civil rights, Appalachian culture, and many more unique subjects and also created a time to create new work such as his own 10 Minute Play, 1957: Little Rock, a play about the Little Rock Nine and their struggle after segregation was deemed unconstitutional by the court ruling Brown vs. The Board of Education.
Since Kyle has been working professionally, he has had many directing opportunities. At Nashville Children's Theater, he directed many storybook-based plays, which allowed students to create their own dialogue. His time at the Rose Performing Arts Company has given him the opportunity to direct titles such as Knock it Off: A Sketch Comedy Show, a half improv, half written show, Disney's Beauty and the Beast Jr., Shrek, The Persian Garden, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and Disney's Peter Pan Jr.
