Kevin’s career was launched over 20 years ago in New York from the hyper creative halls of MTV. In that time, he has established himself as a veteran in the business and has produced and directed a long list of tv series, commercials, documentaries and web projects. Recently his focus has been on developing and executive producing series for many of the top networks such as History, A&E and MTV. He has also kept his feet firmly planted in the advertising world and recently directed and produced spots for Suzuki, Canon, Axe, Nissan, JC Penney, and New Balance. In addition, along with his Transition partner, Kemp Curley, he produced and directed the feature film, First Descent, the first of its kind, fully branded theatrically released film for Universal Pictures and Mountain Dew. Kevin is based on the West coast but can be seen roaming the New York offices on a regular basis.
Kemp began his early production days as one of the go to editors that clients searched out if they wanted something cut for the sports or music industry. Today, his focus has shifted to showrunning, executive producing, directing, and live broadcast. His most recent series to showrun include NBC’s Octane Academy, NFL Network’s Draft Journey, and MTV’s Ultimate Parkour Challenge. He has also produced and directed recent branded initiatives for Ford, Nike, Subaru, Puma, Hurley, and Monster Energy. To add to the load, he has been overseeing and growing the live broadcast arm of Transition Productions, which produced over 100+ hours of live tv and webcasts last year.
