Kevin loves to write, draw, sing, make things, and wonder about possibilities. He is an award-winning children's author and artist of several books and CDs who loves to collaborate with other artists.

Kevin has been a full time children’s author, artist, and performer since 1999, after graduating from Grand Valley State University in 1998 with a degree in Film and Video Production. He is the author and illustrator of The Tomato Collection and I Remember. He is the co-author of This is a Square and A Curious Glimpse of Michigan (a 2006 Great Lakes’ Great Books award nominee), a contributing illustrator of How Much Wood Could a Woodchuck Chuck?, and the co-producer of the music CDs The Tomato Collection: the Big Album (a 2002 Children’s Music Web Award Winner), A Curious Glimpse of Michigan: the Music, and ...and a Happy New Year (a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold Recipient and winner of three other national awards). His newest CD is The Monkeys Go Marching (Simple Songs You Can Play Around With).

Each year, Kevin brings his creativity and love of writing, art, music, and reading to elementary schools, libraries, festivals, and conferences all over the world. His programs are dynamic, age appropriate, educational, and down-right fun. Through puppetry, music, poetry, audience participation, multimedia, and humor, Kevin captivates people of all ages. Since the start of his career, Kevin has visited over 1,000 elementary schools and offers many various presentations and shows.

In addition to Kevin's full touring schedule, he is currently performing regularly as an Artist in Residence at the Grand Rapids Children's Museum and at Gymco's Discovery Preschool.
