Kevin Casper is a freelance writer, musician, amateur photographer, and a PhD candidate at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. When he is not hunched over his laptop working on his dissertation, Kevin can usually be found hanging around musicians. After fleeing central Illinois after high school, he wandered for the better part of the next two decades, meeting musicians from around the world and playing in any band that would have him, including bluegrass, Irish, gypsy jazz, blues, R&B, indie rock, Americana, noise pop, prog rock, folk, country, and some additional projects in genres that are probably best left undefined. He has given guitar lessons to budding musicians, young and old, and currently plays drums in the band Flatbed Honeymoon.
Kevin settled in the Bay Area for seven years where he discovered his love of both photography and the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains. He has been teaching writing courses in composition, technical writing, literary theory, and the rhetoric of humor at the university level since 2005. Keep in touch with Kevin at his blog.
