Kevin was first introduced to the sliding world as a 17 year old following the 2010 Olympic Winter Games when he attended the Alberta skeleton school. Immediately hooked on the sport, he competed in his first North America Cup race in 2012 in Calgary where he had two, top-10 finishes. Kevin competed on the North America Cup for the entire 2014 season. He began on the same circuit in 2015, but progressed onto the Europa Cup for the second half of the season. Kevin celebrated a silver medal at the birthplace of the sport in St. Moritz, Switzerland in his first race. After another full season on the Europa Cup two years ago, Kevin took a giant step forward in his development last season where he debuted on the World Cup.

A season under his belt racing the best in the world, Kevin has made steady progression and is now focused on earning a spot to represent Canada at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

When not sliding down tracks around the world with the beaver painted in Haida art on his helmet, Kevin is a huge baseball fan. In the offseason he can be seen patrolling the outfield of the Calgary sport and social softball league. He is also a massive Edmonton Oilers fan.
