As one of Sanctuary’s first employees, Kevin’s longevity in his role brings depth of experience plus intimate knowledge of each client’s website and tech. He jumps at opportunities to build and code new functionality he’s never tried before as well as creating plugins and custom themes.
When he’s not at work Kevin enjoys working through programming puzzles, creating games, playing games, watching movies, photography and spending time with family. He’s also an avid Bocce player and is a bit obsessed with penguins. Kevin lives in Canton.
