Kiel is from Olathe, Kansas and has experience as a paraeducator at the Manhattan Alternative High School, as a visual data analyst for Sperry Rail Service, and currently works as a tax examining technician for the IRS.
Kiel has a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics. He aspires to become a certified actuary and is currently studying actuarial science, which is used in the insurance industry. His understanding of the math and statistical processes used in insurance underwriting give him a unique ability to spot unfair business practices of insurance companies, particularly unfair claims settlement practices.
Kiel is running for Commissioner of Insurance to look out for the interests of Kansas consumers. Kiel's primary opponent in this race is the current Commissioner, Vicki Schmidt. Schmidt is a member of the Republican Party. She was elected to the office in 2018 and has announced that she is running for re-election. Schmidt has taken $186,750.00 from insurance companies, healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, insurance and healthcare industry PACs, lobbying firms, financial investment firms, and related holding companies. That number doesn't include contributions Schmidt received in 2021.
Kiel has pledged to take no campaign contributions from corporations or corporate PACs.
