Since the mid-70’s, Kyle Pierce’s professional career has been driven by his enduring astrological interests. Soon after completing graduate studies in biostatistics, he became an active contributor to the field of astrological computing and research that was gaining momentum in the early 80’s. His career as a developer of astrological software tools began at Matrix Software, and after a hiatus of many years Kyle has recently returned to work there. In the meantime he has pursued studies of ancient and medieval astrological traditions. He believes that statistical and computing tools can make good servants for astrologers, but, as they say, poor masters.
