Kevin is a designer / civic organizer working in the intersections of ideas, youth, technology, design, and education. Particularly, he’s interested in how design thinking can address problems in youth civic engagement.
He’s the founder and curator of [email protected], South Carolina’s first by-youth, for-youth organization that has engaged thousands of high school students in dialogues around current issues.
Last year, as part of the Obama Foundation’s inaugural Community Leadership Corps, he founded DesignUnderstandAct, a fellowship that helps young activists understand the fundamental theories of change to bolster their work—resulting in 15 projects that tackle issues like education around black history and inability of access to women’s hygiene products.
Previously, he worked in Washington, DC at Youth Service America and in New York as the producer for Debbie Millman’s Masters in Branding thesis presentations and as a design & production intern at RadicalMedia.
In high school, he worked for StudentRND, organizing 24-hour hackathons for students and was the regional manager for 3 seasons.
In his golden days, he produced some satirical videos on his YouTube channel.
