He has worked as a freelance director of photography, gaffer, and key grip for nearly a decade in the film & television industry and compiled an expansive resume of feature films, shorts, commercials, music videos, and documentaries. His 16mm shorts MARCO POLO and THE LAST MAN earned him a cinematography grant from Kodak and NFL Films and his award-winning films NIGHT SHIFT and AMERICAN DANGDUT have screened across the globe from Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles to Warsaw and Jakarta.
In 2008, he was voted one of the Best Filmmakers on Campus by MTV and in 2010 he received an Excellence in Cinematography award from Drexel University. His more recent work has been primarily as a grip on major network TV shows such as GOTHAM, HOMELAND, POWER, BULL, and THE AMERICANS. Kevin's artwork has also been exhibited across the United States, Haiti, and France and his client list ranges from Google and PBS to HBO and the Chinese government.
