We're here to help

Hinge Intelligence is a full-service campaign intelligence shop. We build a foundation of research, develop messages that win, and communicate with impact.

We help clients figure out what they can say, what they should say, and how to say it. Sometimes we push new ideas forward, and other times we push back against opponents. No matter the objective, we love collaborating with smart, strategic teams on complex challenges.

One part researcher and one part communicator, Kyle applies broad experience across public affairs and a no-nonsense style to solve client problems.

What We Do



Campaigns are won in the library. Compelling facts, interesting content, and convincing rebuttals are the building blocks of effective advocacy and strategic communications

  • Opposition research and analysis
  • Fact-checking and rebuttal development
