Kevin is a practicing Stoic, who utilises the philosophy as the cornerstone of his personal development.


Many technologists first entered tech out of curiosity, e.g. how does this machine work?

As I get older, I find myself extending this love for learning to exploring my psyche and improving as a human.

Stoicism is a great prompt to kick off deep work and personal development.
