Kevin was an early adopter of website technology, tinkering with development back in the 90’s. He was lucky enough to turn hobby into career and joined zu in 2007. Kevin now fulfills the role of frontend developer, while occasionally lending support to the backend developers in programming and server setup.
Plain and simple, Kevin cares about making fast websites that are easy to use, but that doesn’t mean they’re easy to build. In his own words, “Building large websites is a challenge that I love. They seem simple, but there’s a lot of thoughtful planning and research that goes into executing a successful finished product.” A highlight in Kevin’s career was working on the City of Saskatoon website, where he had a hand in constructing a platform which would shape the interactions citizens have with their city. Over the years, he has also worked on projects for Cameco, the Saskatchewan Health Quality Council, and Viterra, and is excited to witness the future of the web as it evolves over the next ten years.
Among Kevin’s loves are beer brewing, bread baking, and barbecuing. When he’s not obsessing over the letter B, he might be perusing the Farmers’ Market with wife and daughter, or tearing up the hockey rink. If Kevin were a hashtag, he would be #ballerstatus.
