North Carolina native, Kevin has been cheering for the Pirates for as long as he can remember. In 1993, Kevin enlisted in the Navy and was sent to Treasure Island, California. He was stationed on board the USS Carl Vincent and served as a DC Fireman and Shore Patrol during Desert Storm. After getting out of the Navy in 1996, Kevin returned to North Carolina and obtained certifications as a Firefighter and an EMT. Kevin is currently a fulltime Firefighter/EMT and is working on his Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice and Fire Science with Kaplan University.
Kevin joined the Marching Pirates staff in 2011 as part of the medical team and was quickly welcomed in as part of the family. On November 19, 2011, after ECU defeated UCF in the final home game of the season, Kevin left his “forever” mark on the Marching Pirates. He enlisted the help of the band, the staff, a few family members, some good friends, and of course PeeDee the Pirate, to pull off an unforgettable proposal to his medical team partner Michelle.The next season, the two started as partners and ended the year as husband and wife. With the help of Michelle and his new band family, Kevin has learned how to “Paint it Purple,” Party like a Pirate and bleed Purple & Gold!
