Kyle Barboni

Anime enthusiast, Steampunk apprecianado and artist to the core. Kyle’s journey began when he

fell in love with the Japanese culture. From its balance of the traditional to the modern. The

ancient beauties and futuristic city scapes fueled his ambitions of becoming the artist and

collaborator that he is now.

With a passion for fashion and emerging styles, Japan (Tokyo) happened to be the perfect

ingrediant to feed his obession in the arts. He sought out to discover his mediums, and sharing his

findings with others along the way. It wasn’t until he started creating his own designs, that he

embodied his love for Steampunk. The idea of a Neo­Victorian steam driven world was hard to

resist. So immediatly he got his hands on a monocle, and began deconstructing clocks and

fabricating pieces.

For years he had followed community events or gatherings. Sharing art and information has

always been a vision of his. From his experiences at Burning Man, to weekends at METROCON

and Supercon. It’s lead to a major influence in Kyle’s artistic aesthetic. If its tinkering with his

Steampunk accessories, or fabricating his Cosplay persona. His imagination is constantly driven

by his surroundings.

One of Kyle’s current ambitions is to launch “The Geek Annex.” A platform where users can

interact and share information on all things GEEK Culture. With a huge connection to social media

applications, Kyle will aim to allow subscribers to repost, like and even pin their findings to

networks like Facebook, Instagram or Pintrest. “The Geek Annex” will share information on

emerging technologies, the lastest anime releases, gaming info and global street style. In

becoming a member of Sugar Gamers, he hopes to create a new spot for himself within the

GEEK Community. Sugar Gamers shares the same vision as he does, that our community has no

bounds. Every GEEK on every level, should be a part of sharing and embracing their Geek­ness.
