Kevin has a profound interest in the construction, interactions within, environmental stewardship, and continued development of urban centers. As such, Kevin plans to visit, immerse himself within, and explore an array of urban environments throughout Japan, Southeast Asia, and Turkey, as well as Southern and Eastern Europe. It is Kevin’s hope that he will return from his excursion with new and exciting ideas about how to better serve his community’s social, economic, and environmental needs through more sustainable approaches to urban planning and development.

Alumni Reflections

How did the Bonderman impact your life?

“The positive impact the Bonderman has had on my life cannot be summed up in 3-4 sentences. That said, my best memory was getting engaged when my then-girlfriend (now wife!) came to visit me in Albania.”

What are you doing now?

“I’m working for UW’s Puget Sound Institute as a Research Scientist where I am developing a land cover change model to project land cover into the far future. The model is part of one of the largest linked modeling projects in the world (Puget Sound Integrated Modeling Framework).”
