An unusual boy, Kevin read The New York Times while growing up in Michigan and Indiana. Like most kids of a literary bent, he pursued philosophy and boxing at the University of Notre Dame. After a wayward spell in the financial markets, trading S&P options in the open outcry market, Kevin returned to graduate school at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
He moved to New York to write for Money magazine and eventually The New York Times, where he covered IPOs for a joint venture with TheStreet.com. After 9/11, Kevin and his wife, Sarah, left New York for Oregon, where he’s been ever since.
