During that year Kevin met his wife-to-be. After graduating in 1996, he worked for a large South African practice, Louis Karol Architects, as part of a design team on large corporate projects. After a number of years, Kevin rejoined ATA Architects in Cincinnati for 4 years, where he filled a lead designer role on varying projects, including 2 fire stations & a school athletics center.

He was the lead designer on 2 biomedical research towers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, totaling 800,000 SF & almost $500 million in value.

Kevin was   also a design team member on many projects in China, run out of GBBN’s Beijing office.

During his time at GBBN Architects, Kevin collaborated with his colleague, Greg Phillips, on numerous residential design projects & they formed “S+P Design Studio” in 2005. Eventually, they would branch out & include construction services, forming “SMP” with Guylando Moreno in 2009.
