Kyle with Mithril Media is an absolute ROCK STAR! He built me an amazing website in ½ the time other companies quoted and at a much more competitive price. He went above and beyond in EVERY facet of the process to make sure I was involved, informed and satisfied with the overall result. To say that I would recommend Kyle to my associates is an understatement….he will be the only web designer I refer moving forward.
Victory Church & Christian Academy
Our church and school were in desperate need of a makeover of our online presence. Kyle Pflueger was able to create a website for our needs in gathering and sharing information and the needs of our community with a site that is intuitive to navigate and pleasing to look at. He has also given us consistent branding and marketing integrating our website and social media ads. He has done great work and goes above and beyond.

Kyle has now created 10 sites for two of my businesses. He is extremely attentive to details and every one of sites are exactly what I envisioned. His prices are very reasonable. Kyle doesn’t stop when he finishes either. He will always answer if you need updates for your sites.
How I Work
My work style is simple. I like to use a repeatable process that allows for optimum creativity and efficiency. My roots are firmly planted in the styles of agile development which allows me to adapt and create quickly as I gather feedback from my clients in order to create a finished product that fully suits their needs.
How I Live
A proud father of 3 with a loving and supporting wife who doesn’t truly appreciate my impeccable sense of humor. In my time outside of being Dad, I can usually be found with an instrument of some kind. Maybe a kazoo. Or a chime. Sometimes just my hands and a steering wheel ready to take a beating.
(But not too hard). I am a firm believer in making time to stop and appreciate the world around you. Inspiration comes from many places and most of the time we don’t have to look far to find it. And when we do find the right kind of inspiration, the work becomes a lot more fun.
Conquering “mountains” is one of the ways I enjoy spending my free time. Other activities I enjoy are things like making gourmet frozen pizzas, pretending I am as good at sports as I once was, or pretending I am as good of a musician as I’d like to be.
If not already clear, I am also a strong supporter of not taking life too seriously. It is safe to say my children take after me in that regard. We like to laugh and we do so often. I read on the internet that if you laugh enough it will make you skinny and better-looking, so I guess you could say I exercise often.

At Agentology, I am responsible for both ends of the development process. I work in two separate capacities, spending time both writing the requirements, stories and acceptance criteria that help shape the product and also verifying and testing those requirements once they are through the coding cycle. As a part of the test cycles that are integrated into the development process, I am also responsible for the ground-up design and implementation of the entire QA process, including a brand new, test automation infrastructure.
