Kyle Ford, CCO & Principal Photographer
With a degree in Economics and Philosophy, Kyle began his professional life in finance. Creative energies eventually prompted him to quit his job and pursue his keen interest in craft cocktails and photography.
Kyle became the resident cocktail and spirits expert for Rémy Cointreau and managed their international brand advocacy initiative. During this time, his strategic use of social media and photography inspired a business opportunity. The combination of these two worlds served as a basis for the formation of FML and its first creative partnerships with international spirits companies.
Kyle’s work and personality has been featured such places as Fox & Friends, VH1, Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Wine Enthusiast, and Nylon Magazine.
