Hi, I'm Kevin and I am a software engineer from Austin, Texas. I'm currently working on games, tooling, and backend platform services for clients at Gamebreaking Studios.

You can find me around the web on Twitter, LinkedIn, and GitHub, but Twitter is generally the best way to get ahold of me. Feel free to reach out if you ever want to chat 馃槃 !
