As a sophomore at the University of Memphis, Kevin sold his first 100k+ independent software product— and the rest is history! With 12 years of professional experience, including work with international banks, the music industry, and non-profit organizations, Kevin is more than proficient with every major coding language and content management system. He even built software for Deutsche Bank that, 7 years later, is still being used worldwide. So we think that makes Kevin more than qualified for the title “back-end web guru”. He keeps Riverwork’s hundreds of websites up-to-date, secure from hackers, and glitch free. When Kevin isn’t saving the day behind the scenes, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, cooking and hiking.
