Having maneuvered through the music and fashion industry while still working in sports Kevin has figured out what it takes to build the perfect career for an athlete. “Utilizing experience and creativity is the key to building a perfect career for an athlete. Being young and a former athlete myself but having enough experience in the corporate settings allows me to relate to the athlete while also having enough understanding to know how to make the tough decisions. Having worked with the likes of French Montana, Teyana Taylor, Nipsey Hussle, Dorroughmusic and countless other entertainers in the music industry Kevin quickly realized artist and athlete are more similar than we assumed and if the same marketing efforts are made in the sports world we could have the same results.
