Unsure whether to go full-time as a journalist or pursue an African fruit juice business, Kevin settled instead on Development. He hasn’t lost his thirst for action but now writes mostly with a red pen. Joining the Springfield Centre in 2011, he mainly advises programmes on strategy, intervention design, tactics, log-frames and results measurement.

Kevin speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese and French. He has completed assignments in Nigeria, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Serbia, Bangladesh, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Indonesia. Previously Kevin worked for the Donor Committee for Enterprise Development. There, among other things, he reviewed and published research on results measurement and private sector development. As a postgraduate he studied international development, focusing too heavily on economics and institutions and not enough on the business potential of fruit juice.
