Nothing is known about Kyle's life prior to or as the outbreak began. It is possible he lived in or near Alexandria before the apocalypse.
Kyle is one of the many Alexandrians present in helping construct walls out on the side of the road, which are designed to corral the horde of zombies along a route away from Alexandria.

Residents and refugees are lined up sleeping on the floors and hallways on multiple levels of the house.

The next night, he sleeps inside the Barrington House when several reanimated residents begin attacking fellow survivors. Fortunately, Kyle is able to escape outside to safety.

After most of the Saviors are wiped out due to Eugene's faulty bullets, he helps the others fight the surviving Saviors until they surrender.

Sometime during the six years after the supposed death of Rick Grimes, Kyle was granted a role on the council that governs Alexandria.
He is among the residents to gather at the front gate when Judith and the others return with the newcomers. Later, he joins the rest of the council as they interview Magna's group before voting on whether or not they should be permitted to join the community. He and the other residents are shocked when Michonne reveals that Magna's hand tattoo means she was once in prison before the apocalypse.
In Alexandria, Kyle, along with Nora and Laura, listens as Michonne, Siddiq, and Aaron discuss the new threat as well as the state of the Kingdom and their invitation to attend the fair. Kyle is disappointed to hear that Michonne refuses to let anyone attend the fair. However, she later changes her mind and allows to send a delegation to the Kingdom.
