My name's Kevin and I'm a programmer & business starter who has spent the last 10 years working in music, merchandising and online video. Read more about me below, check out my projects & portfolio companies and follow me on Twitter.
Kevin learned HTML in elementary school, then took every programming class he could through high school.
While freelancing through college Kevin started a nerdy apparel line called Leetcore & sold a few hundred t-shirts. Selling a creative, physical product that people wanted was insanely gratifying.
To handle his growing freelancing business he built a CMS he called The Pantry and licensed it to 100+ bands including multi-platinum artists Panic at the Disco.
Kevin developed print-shop management suite Run My Shop to help run MerchSpin and developed ecommerce solutions for specialty shops including Johnny Cupcakes and online stores including District Lines.
After becoming a shareholder District Lines & sister print-shop MerchSpin, Kevin developed merchandising for YouTube creators and signed exclusive merch deals with hundreds of top channels including Smosh & Jenna Marbles and 4 MCNs.
Kevin got into live events after co-founding an artist management company focused on YouTube talent and made the first ever YouTuber tour with CAA, second national youtuber tour with Live Nation.
In 2010 Kevin co-created & produced Playlist Live, a 3-day YouTube focused convention, and grew the event to 4,000+ attendees.
After a successful 2013 event Kevin left to work a number of developing side projects and launched Channel Totals, a stat totaling webapp for YouTube channels.
Kevin lives in Orlando, FL with his crafty, design blogger wife Sarah.
