You’re probably wondering after looking at that headshot, “who’s this guy with an awkward smirk and more product in his hair than I knew existed?” Well, that’s me – my name’s Kyle Infante and I’m one of the newest Interactive Producers at Agency Entourage.
I was born and raised in the ‘burbs – Coppell, Texas to be specific. And I made my great escape only 20-something miles away to Denton, where I attended the University of North Texas. I spent four fun-filled years there where I learned about life, love and advertising.
My first internship at Wisteria solidified my love for the ad world and showed me that my loud mouth translated well into the written word. After graduating with a BA in Strategic Communications, I set my sights on the professional world. I got my start working at Dale Carnegie Training of DFW as a creative coordinator, building awareness around the Dallas market and writing compelling copy.
Like most 20-somethings, I had the need to explore and I found myself in Austin, Texas. Through the advice of a few friends, I found myself in a new industry but doing the same thing – marketing and advertising, writing copy and working with clients. After two years and more memories than I can describe here, I found myself back in Dallas.
Call me crazy, but I moved back to Dallas for love. And I found myself back in the industry I love, too. I’m so excited to join an amazing team that consistently raises the bar in the marketing world, recently being ranked by the Dallas Business Journal as one of Dallas’ top 25 agencies. I look forward to being a part of AE’s future success and watching the agency grow.
A few random facts about myself:
- I’m half-Cuban, coming from a family of Cuban immigrants. My father and grandparents made their way to the States in ’62 and never left Dallas.
- I was a child actor, but you probably never saw anything I starred in. I did two short films and a few commercials, but nothing that would get me a star on the Walk of Fame.
- At 25, I’m finally learning about the art of cooking. So far, I’ve mastered nachos and pasta.
- My TV is invariably on either Bravo or Discovery. I know, it’s a weird combination.
- I’m a P1 and my radio is always set to Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket.
