Kinley graduated from The City College of New York in 2021 with a degree in Economics. With virtually no assistance from their college, he was given information from a college friend about a program called COOP Careers. Through that, he was able to attend a panel promoting The Data School. He was given a brief tutorial on how the Tableau Program works, and seeing the low barrier of entry as well as witnessing how to create beautiful dashboards relatively easily, applying to the school was a given. Though having low expectations in getting in after being told about the low admittance, he persevered and was able to secure a position in DSNY2!
In his free time, Kinley enjoys gaming, and playing FFXIV with his main Job, Dragoon.
