Kevin has been fooling around Orange County theater for 6 years in such shows as SPAMALOT (Sir Robin), AVENUE Q (Nicky/Trekkie), and the ever popular CANNIBAL: THE MUSICAL (Would you even know?). He took the nifty chance to take part in the original production of LES MIZ AND FRIENDS, and is delighted to reprise his role as Cosette in the LA production. When not on stage, Kevin is spending his days as a toy maker and proud dad and husband. Kevin has always felt weird about referring to himself in the third person. Enjoy the show!
