Kevin has always had an interest in combining the forces of education and business. One of his early projects as an undergraduate student was to create a documentary, The Commercialization of Michael Jordan, that examined the use of athlete endorsers and what makes them successful in advertising campaigns.

Many of the lessons learned from successful – and failing education initiatives – can be applied to other environments.
