Kevin is a Milwaukee-based designer, art director and cyclist servicing clients all around the globe. He provides a wide range of professional design services for active lifestyle and corporate brands. Kevin specializes in branding and logo design.
In 2007 he co-founded COG Magazine, an independent quarterly print publication focusing on urban cycling and lifestyle. He traveled the world documenting cycling culture through words and his camera, promoting and creating content for COG. This jumpstarted his interest in design.

Oh yeah, he is also a professional photographer.
