Kevin was born in Reading, Pennsylvania and spent much of his youth moving all around the country until finally ending up in Las Vegas in 1995.

Kevin has trained in Thailand numerous times at camps including Sitkuanim, Sasiprapa (in 2007 when he competed at the king’s birthday celebration), Sitsongpeenong (in 2010 when he took part in the Toyota Cup 8-man tournament which he made it to the semi-finals), Sitmonchai (which he has been to 3 times to date) and most recently at Sutai in Phuket.
