|Kevin is your average guy; he loves his family, a good meal, fantasy baseball, the New York Yankees and musical theatre - not necessarily in that order. As a kid he wanted to play first base for the Yankees until he was hit in the head by a ball and became fearful of getting hit again. Placing that dream aside, he has channeled all of his energies into perfecting his craft. Graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in Musical Theatre, he worked his way through school as a grocery store cashier on partial scholarship from his employer.
Currently he works at a trendy hotel in downtown Manhattan as a bellhop, this show has been one of his first professional auditions. Close with his family and his childhood friends, he loves a good practical joke (he gave his mother a fixed $10,000 lottery ticket) and has an overwhelming fear of small spaces and leaving his belly-button exposed while he sleeps (does not like people to touch that area on his body.) He's especially close to both of his parents and gets a little sentimental when discussing them.
Admittedly a sensitive person, Kevin does not invite a lot of people into his inner circle. Not standoffish, simply reserved and focused he plans to stay on point during the competition and avoid the drama.
Of his Grease experience so far he has said, "It completely surpassed any and all expectations…the talent and competition blew me away. I feel as though I learned a tremendous amount and grew as a performer, which was unexpected."
