Kevin was a Registered Architect in New York having received his Bachelor of Architecture from Illinois Institute of Technology (1990) and Master of Science Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University (1993). Kevin had lived and worked in New York City since 1992. Kevin was a passionate and brilliant architect, inventor, and lover for all things neon and translucent. Kevin, partner and director of architecture at Weetu, was also in love with teaching at Parsons. He got so much joy from his students. He filled the Weetu studio with laughter & positivity, always finding the silver lining. Nobody made him happier than his life partner of over 10 years, Cuman Cropper & dogs Bean & Pepita. Kevin's smile, wit, humor, intelligence, defiance, empathy and creative genius will be missed. The world will not be the same without him in it; he touched so many lives in his short but illustrious career.
