Throughout Kevin’s 15 years in AV, he’s seen the shift from analog to digital, to HD, to 4K. He did AV in high school and college. Afterwards he got an opportunity to work at Meeting Services Inc driving trucks. When he left five years later to freelance, he was their senior video technician. During that time he took a class at the Evolve Academy and fell in love with the company. Three months later, we hired him as our first Solutions Specialist. From 2016 to 2021, Kevin grew with the solutions team. He became the senior solutions manager for image processing and new media. He loved that no two days were the same and included searching for odd items for upcoming shows, testing equipment, and teaching at the Academy. In 2021, Kevin left Evolve to pursue other educational opportunities. After running into the Evolve team at the 2023 Infocomm, he decided to come back. By 2024, he rejoined our team as the National Director of Technology. His role today is also versatile. Kevin works on LED, image processing, projection, media servers, and more. In his spare time, he builds a pre-programmed, synchronized Christmas light display, including 20,000 incandescent lights and 1,600 pixels. Or, he spends time with his son.
