Kevin is the handbell director for Pilgrim Lutheran Church. Growing up, Kevin played the clarinet from the time he was a young boy all the way through his college years. He was a member of various concert bands at Purdue University, and studied with Michael Borschel of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. After college, Kevin put down the clarinet and began singing. Through it all, he also has played handbells for over 30 years. In 2000 Kevin made the transition from ringer to handbell director and in 2009 he formed Pilgrim’s youth handbell choir. “Bells offer a unique musical opportunity as well as an enhancement for our worship,” says Kevin. “As we move forward, I hope to expand our bell choirs and continue this offering that our congregation has so warmly embraced."

Kevin holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer and Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, and is a licensed professional engineer in the state of Indiana. Kevin worked in the automotive industry for 13 years before moving to Roche Diagnostics in 2007.
