Before pivoting to a career in Wealth Management, Kevin was a professional television actor, best known for his 5-season starring role on TNT's action show "The Last Ship." It was at this time that he began studying certified financial planning at UCLA and alternative investments through an online course at Harvard Business School in-between seasons. The television set quickly took note of Kevin's intense focus on finance and began asking if he could manage their investments. This led to his transition from entertainment to offering wealth management for high-net-worth individuals.

Kevin earned a B.A. in Fine Arts from UCLA. He is currently pursuing his M.B.A. at Texas A&M University and is completing the final requirement to become a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM (CFP®) professional.
