Meet our favoritate Bay Area Driving Instructors!

Meet Kenneth Dupree, instructor, advisor and getaway driver for Push Start Driving School. He has been behind the wheel since the age of twelve and actually drove himself to the DMV driving test alone.

If he were to pat you on the back, you would list it on your resume.  In a past life, he was himself.  If opportunity knocks and he’s not home, opportunity waits. His fortunes cookies simply say, congratulations.

Sharks have a week dedicated to him. Mosquitos refuse to bite him purely out of respect.  At museums, he is allowed to touch the art.  Therapists open up to him.  He once received a standing ovation from a jury box.

His “small talk” has altered foreign policy.  He once ran a marathon because it was on his way to the mall.  Bigfoot has taken a photograph of him.  He can speak French in Russian.  Even his enemies list him as an emergency contact number.

When he has a 50/50 chance, the odds are 80/20 in his favor.   The contents of his tacos refuse to fall from the tortilla.  He once burst open a piñata with a wink and a smile.

Ivy League Universities send applications to him.  When downloading software, it accepts his terms and conditions.

Say ‘Ayyyy!’ to Push Start driving instructor Kaylyn Rushing! (Also known as “Kiss”, “Kei”, “Cass”, “Kesha”, “Kraylorn”, and “Level 78 Warlock Commander: Urmondok the Cursed Retribution”) (and more!).

Lithuanian born, American raised, Canadian bound, “Kay” considers herself an independent screenwriter, storyteller, and all around jokester. She studied Communication with Media Production at California State University: East Bay, and graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor’s.  Her favorite things include Star Wars, rock band Muse, Corgis, and obviously internet memes. Don’t forget those adorable kitties! Kaylyn also won a finalist award at the 2020 Oregon Short Film festival for her original comedy script “This Game is Gonna Suck, Bro!”, and is currently working on multiple other projects. She also enjoys playing video games on her PC and PS4 like Rocket League, TF2, Dragon Age, or simply Minecraft or Just Cause 2.

Break the ice and get to know Kay by mentioning anything Star Wars, whether you need to know who Luke Skywalker’s father was, Ben Quadinaros’ middle name, or why that one character is hidden in the background of that one scene in episode 11 of season 2 of Hit TV Show Star Wars: The Clone Wars, (but only in the Dutch version!). Whatever the case is, Kaylyn looks forward to meeting you and teaching you how to be the best pilot in the galaxy a great, safe driver! May The Schwartz be with you!
