Kevin was born and raised in New York City. A graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 1999, while serving overseas in command of a US Army Air Cavalry Troop.

Setting Everything Else Aside

 

[image error]

In November 2017, my fight against MS broke. Everything came to a screeching halt except three priorities: my health, my mind, and My Little Love. I emerged from that sabbatical a changed man.
