When not writing and recording songs or playing solo gigs, he teaches audio production, music theory, and music history courses at Citrus College. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Audio Production from Indiana University and a Master of Music in Composition from California State University, Los Angeles. After completing his audio degree, Kevin cofounded the critically acclaimed band Homunculus, with whom he co-wrote and co-produced four studio albums and toured nationally at an average of 150 shows per year for nearly a decade. After the breakup of Homunculus, he moved to Los Angeles and formed the band Everyday Animals, with whom he wrote and produced two studio albums and performed countless shows all around the greater Los Angeles area. Kevin currently performs, writes, and records as a solo artist.
