Before receiving an MFA at the University of Memphis in 2006, he spent 12 years in Little Rock, Arkansas in the field of design beginning as a printshop typesetter. This was followed by four years in a local advertising agency as assistant art director before moving to the telecommunications company ALLTEL as a graphic artist.

Aside from duties as a full-time, tenure-track professor, he is also an experienced and enthusiastic freelance designer having completed a diverse range of projects, paid and pro bono, for local, regional, and national clients. This site is a showcase of that design portfolio as well as personal and professional information.

Feel free to have a look, and if you have any questions or have any projects you need help with, please don't hesitate to drop him a line. Thanks for visiting!

By the way, Kevin also doesn't make it a habit of speaking in the third person, so he won't anymore.
