Born in Los Gatos, California, Kevin grew up in Havertown, Pennsylvania. He attended Washington and Lee University, where he majored in Journalism and was captain of the basketball team. After working for a sports marketing firm in Philadelphia, he quit his job and moved to New York to study acting. He studied with Wynn Handman and Greg Zittel. The first play he saw in New York was Lanford Wilson's "Burn This." That experience convinced Kevin that he had made the right career choice. He regularly returns to the theater and teaches acting as well. He and his wife Lisa have a daughter, Eirann Grace.
