Kevin comes from a musical family and began playing the French horn when he was 12. He became
interested in audio around the same time and started building kit audio equipment and speaker enclosures for
friends while in high school. With the ongoing improvement in the quality of electronic components over time,
he realized that older equipment could often be tweaked to sound better, and this discovery began a life-long
interest in audio equipment. He attended Carnegie-Mellon University and earned BFA and MFA degrees in music
performance, and was a member of the Caracas Philharmonic for several years during the early 1980s. When he
returned to the States in the mid 1980s he continued to freelance around the Buffalo NY area, but got a day
gig working for NYSEG which turned into a 30-year career in various capacities beginning with performing energy
audits, marketing, credit, and finally program management. He recently retired from NYSEG and now is having a
blast working for Audio Classics. His specialty is restoring vintage tube and solid-state equipment.
