About me

A Merseyside lad born ‘n’ raised with a love for writing about himself in the third person, Kyle setup Dafty in 2011 with the ambition of creating bold and entertaining content for TV, online and commercial. His career began in Manchester at Chief Productions, working - quite casually - as their in-house runner for two years. It was during his time at Chief that he created Dafty. A few years later, Kyle left his position at Chief to expand Dafty as a collective, focusing on collaborative work with other writers and performers. Dafty produced their first TV programme for London Live earlier this year (TX 19th April 2014) and have created film for brands such Mercedes Benz, McVities, Vodka Revolution and King of Servers. Dafty have also shot for various agencies, such as JWT/CheethamBell and BJL, working on brands such as Rustlers and Taste Inc Kyle moved to London in 2013. He can be found hanging out in some of the trendier areas of Camden and Hackney. Likes: - Good, heart-felt story telling. Dislikes: - Brand manufactured hashtags.
