Kevin is the President of North America Publications and the CEO of Best Version Media. He grew up in a suburb of Detroit and now lives with his family in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. After a stunning collegiate football career he played professional football from 1993 to 1996. During that time he began searching for God everywhere (everywhere but the Catholic Church!). He had been raised a Catholic, of course. After a number of years of looking he finally came back home to the true faith.

Kevin has been married to his lovely wife, Leslie, for twenty-two years. They are blessed with seven children, five boys and two girls, aged 21 to 9.

After the family moved from Northborough, MA to a suburb of Milwaukee, Kevin co-founded one of the largest Catholic men's conferences in the country. It's called Men of Christ. 3,000+ men attend their annual conference. He also co-founded the Catholic Men's Leadership Alliance, which is an apostolate to unite all Catholic men's ministries throughout North America.

Moreover, he founded Virtue Sport, an apostolate on using sports to build character into children. And he created Unite Our Nation, focused on taking Christ into the streets through Eucharistic processions.
