BIOGRAPHY:

Kevin's goal of becoming a professional athlete was stopped short by blowing out his knee. After two intense knee surgeries, Kevin found a passion in Sports Medicine while he rehabilitated himself back to normal. His first job as a sports trainer was at a high school. He went on to work at a Jr. College, and finally worked his way up to being the head trainer of the 76ers basketball team in his hometown of Philadelphia. After serving in one of the most coveted positions in sports medicine for several years, Kevin met a man named Howard White, who convinced him to come work for Nike, where he has remained ever since as The Katalyst.
