Positive outcome ! First recommendations directly realized.
Spot on. Very to the point. Great Advice. Meeting again.
Definitely my best call. Kevin shared really exciting ideas and explained very clear ways to make huge improvements with my app. I'm super grateful.
Worth every penny. Kevin is extremely smart and intuitive about product and design. He's also honest, direct and specific. He is also just a nice, approachable guy. I would highly recommend Kevin.
Kevin would likely deny this fact, but he is somewhat of a luminary in the UX and design community, and for very good reasons: on our call, he was able to instantly provide specific advice and insight -- a fantastically helpful conversation.
Kevin's work at Ok/Cancel shows three things about him: 1) He's a keen observer of the people around him. He has a great sense of the field and the subtleties involved. The Ok/Cancel comics and commentaries are a meaningful statement about the field. 2) He knows how to grab opportunity when it becomes available. 3) He's a damn good artist.
What can I say? Kevin is a smart cookie. His recent work focusing business objectives at Yahoo! using comics is a case study for the industry. I'm stoked to be in the same building!
Kevin and I started at Trilogy back in 1999, and we worked together in a Trilogy spinoff known as pcOrder. Amazingly, Kevin does a lot of things, all of them well. He combines an incredible design sensibility with a deep understanding of the customers and the market they exist in. Kevin's the sort of person that immediately 'gets it' and I hope to work with him again in the future.
Kevin's a brilliant, multi-talented leader. He worked closely with engineers, designers, QA, content and the executive team to deliver robust products for our users. He's part-designer, part-developer and, as a product manager, has a deep insight into the Web 2.0 industry and social software. He always listens and responds with well-analyzed answers. He took on a lot at Raptr, multitasking on concurrent initiatives, while his patience and poise grounded the team during the furious two-week release cycles. It was more than a pleasure to work with Kevin, it was awesome.
Kevin's one of those amazing people who does great work and helps those around him do great work. It's not just because of his terrific design insights, but also his encouraging and playful personality. I had a blast working with Kevin and I would jump on the opportunity to do it again.
Kevin is an invaluable product lead that has a strong understanding of user behavior on social media and social networking sites. He's passionate about each project he takes on and it clearly showed with his attention to user interaction, design, and functionality. Also, his work ethic and focus on users were contagious and believe that this was what made Kevin a strong leader that the team respected. All of these factors together with the fact that he's simply a really good guy to be around makes Kevin a strong addition to any team.
