Kyler Dineen
Activist, Entrepreneur, Marketing Executive

Kyler DineenBorn January 1996, Kyler Dineen grew up in Old Bridge, New Jersey as an only child. He pursued his interest in entrepreneurship at a very young age, opening up a digital magazine for each of his favorite online games he played (VMK, Habbo, vSide). After learning he enjoyed managing virtual businesses, he tried his hands at the real thing. He founded Melodic Marketing at the age of 13 after a successful experience helping a family friend with promoting their chain of comedy clubs, Catch A Rising Star, online. In March 2010, Kyler launched Contempoteen, a digital magazine and lifestyle website branded as "The Magazine for the Modern Teen". 

He became increasingly interested in politics and worked on multiple campaigns for the NJLP shortly after graduating high school and would go on to be elected as their youngest board member and direct their youth outreach efforts. He left the position in June 2015 to run as an independent for his local town council. In March 2015, he founded Land for the Homeless, a 501(c)3 public charity whose mission is to "foster a community, and advocate, for those in need of shelter". The organization is working to build safe communities for the homeless to be able to seek refuge in and advance toward self-sufficiency. It was also in 2015 that he consulted for Families Against Addiction, helping them establish and structure their nonprofit organization and assisted with marketing. Throughout the 2016 election season he worked as the communications director for the Steven Uccio campaign for U.S. Congress.

Kyler graduated from Middlesex County College in Summer 2016 with an A.A.S. in Small Business Management. During his time as a student at MCC he served as the vice president of the college's Social Committee and founded the MCC Independents, a campus organization focused on promoting independent politics. 
After his graduation he was elected to the college's Board of Trustees and their foundation's advisory board. In this position he has voted on the institution's facilities renovation and expansion, human resources and union contracts, grants and budgets, food and bookstore contractors, police operations, and academic schedules.

Kyler presently studies at Rutgers University and is continuing to advance the noble mission of Land for the Homeless as well as work on other causes that matter to him.
