Professional Musician

When Kevin is not hunched over his laptop working on his dissertation, he can usually be found hanging around with his fellow 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

Kevin has given guitar lessons to budding musicians, young and old, and currently plays drums in the band Flatbed Honeymoon.

Other Interests

Kevin settled in the San Francisco 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.
