Kale was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota. He lived in Dallas, Texas for about 8 years and has spent the last 14 years in Colorado Springs, CO. He and his wife, Laura, recently had their first child – a baby boy named Everest (they chose his name from the time Kale spent in Nepal and Tibet). When not at work Kale is usually sleeping, climbing, or backpacking.
