If there is one thing that Kevin has learned in his nearly 15 years of experience, it's that concept is king, as long as it's on-strategy. This "Creative Aficionado" has proven to be a "jack-of-all-trades" and has even managed to master some. He once worked as a demo artist for Alias | Wavefront teaching 3d animation. On another occasion he branded a company, shot all the photography and directed the construction of the entire product catalog himself. And once, he even refinished the interior of a yacht (not his own). Kevin is very logical and analytical. He loves the technical aspects of things, not just the creative. He's currently in the process of rebuilding a motorcycle and recently launched a tech startup ideaMASS.com. Let's just say he likes to keep busy.
Kevin's personality traits Perfectionist. Movie snob.
