Hey there, I'm Kevin. I'm a New York native living in the Queen City who has a love for craft beer - the more local the better - and co-created @CLTBeerUp. That along with good food, the outdoors (including @SCLTHoops), live music, movies, and theater keep me occupied and happy.

I've always loved working with my hands and building things - whether it's putting up a ceiling fan, taking apart a PC or building a website.

I'm a long time Front End Developer who has helped create, develop, test and maintain websites, landing pages, and web applications for major brands - including Goldman Sachs, AAA Carolinas, Biltmore, Dynacast, Laura Ashley & Crescent Communities - using HTML/XHTML/HTML5 & CSS/CSS3, Javascript, jQuery, coding with text editors, and slicing and dicing in Photoshop.

I've worked extensively on HTML emails and campaigns, including emails optimized for mobile devices using media queries, in ExactTarget and Campaign Monitor.

Also experienced in developing strategy and social media, having done campaigns for AAA and Biltmore among others.
