Kevin received his law degree from New York University, where he focused in administrative procedure and competed in Moot Court. Previously, he studied Politics at Willamette University, where he was a member of the debate team. Before joining PEER, Kevin worked with Matsikoudis & Fanciullo, a small environmental law firm in Jersey City, New Jersey, and held a fellowship with the Administrative Conference of the United States, an agency responsible for promoting improvements in the efficiency, adequacy, and fairness of the federal administrative process. He also assisted ACUS’s former Chairman, Paul R. Verkuil, in the publication of his volume on overuse of civilian contractors and the importance of professional government: Valuing Bureaucracy. Kevin enjoys board and PC games, volunteer judging for mock trial and debate tournaments, reading science fiction, and trying to make it at least halfway up the easy trails in our National Parks.
