Some of Kevin’s earliest memories are in the kitchen with his parents at their house outside Lake Tekapo in New Zealand. At 12 years old, he started working in a local bakery to learn more about the industry. Never a fan of traditional schooling, Kevin enrolled in culinary school at age 14 and quickly excelled. With his strong work ethic and perseverance, Kevin moved up the ranks of the culinary world and left New Zealand for larger markets in Australia and the US. After the birth of his daughter, he realized he needed to provide for more than just himself, and took to yachting after learning about the lifestyle and payouts. A passionate chef in the kitchen, Kevin has worked on some of the largest boats out of the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Pacific Islands. Currently based in Melbourne, Kevin flies home every chance he can to spend time with his daughter.
