As a former financial advisor, Kevin spent the last several years working long and hard hours within the office environment. He empathizes with those who are in the daily grind, have wonderful careers, work for great companies, and enjoy their coworkers, but have their excitement instantly watered down every time they pour a cup of bland office brew.
Leaving the financial world in pursuit of a work/family balance, Kevin was introduced to JBC and the imported Italian Bianchi barista machines at a convention in Chicago, IL. Instantly astonished by the first sip of the Italian double espresso, he knew there was something amazing there. He was even more impressed by the fact that it was a compostable, 100% organic product made with, fair act, certified beans, – all of which fell in line with his personal values. It was at this moment that he made it his mission to bring the finest of office coffees to the greater Charlotte businesses.
Today, Kevin pours his passion into RISE 2 GRIND GOURMET COFFEE while also spending quality time with his loved ones and enjoying biking, swimming, traveling, and continuing to explore the finest of brews from around the world
