Education: BBA, Belmont University, 2012; MS, Azusa Pacific University, 2014. At SPU since 2016.

Kevin grew up near Columbus, Ohio, and upon graduating from high school, he headed south to Nashville, Tennessee to study music business at Belmont University. While in college, Kevin found his work as a new-student orientation leader at Belmont more meaningful and fun than the hours spent catering to the needs of spoiled musicians, so he moved to Los Angeles in 2012 to begin studying for a master’s in college counseling and student development at Azusa Pacific University.

While in California, his passion for working with college students (and his passion for great Mexican food) was ignited. During his time in California, he worked in the Discipleship Office at Azusa Pacific University, serving as both a spiritual mentor and small-group leader to a number of students. During graduate school, he also spent one year as a graduate hall coordinator at Occidental College. Upon graduating with his master’s degree, he moved to New Hampshire to serve as a residence hall manager at the University of New Hampshire for two years.

Kevin could not be more excited to dive into the community and build relationships with his students. In his free time, you can find Kevin nose deep in a book, playing guitar, hiking, or exploring Seattle, one coffee shop at a time.
