Kevin has blended writing and science from the earliest stages of his career. As an essayist on science, art, and society, his bylines have appeared in the national publications American Theatre and Script, as well as the Los Angeles publications LA Weekly, Stage Raw, and Footlights. He has four degrees from MIT, including a PhD in physics. While at MIT he studied writing under author Frank Conroy and playwright A.R. Gurney, the latter becoming a life-long mentor. After a post-graduate stretch in Silicon Valley, Kevin worked at NASA where he invented and patented a wireless sensing technology that was created to search for life on Mars but had even more applications on Earth. He received the prestigious NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal for the pioneering nature of this work.

Kevin’s artistic insights spring from a unique life-experience which includes cutting-edge international science and government policy-making at the highest levels. He is a member of the Antaeus Theatre Playwrights Lab and served as dramaturg on the world premiere of FOREVER BOUND, which received a Los Angeles Ovation Award Nomination for Playwriting in 2018.

  • The Operation (10 minute play)
    A raw conversation between an adult child and their mother about an upcoming operation.
  • That Scottish Cat (10 minute play)
    Four jazz musicians struggle to present the Scottish Play in Seussical-style.
