Kevin holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of New South Wales, and a Diploma of Education and Graduate Diploma of Religious Education from the Council for Christian Education in Schools. Kevin also holds a Graduate Diploma in Education (Administration) from the Australian Catholic University. He worked for the Catholic Education Office prior to entering state politics.
Kevin was elected to Hawkesbury City Council in September 1999. From 2001 to 2004 he served as Deputy Mayor, whilst still working as a teaching administrator. During 14 years as a school teacher, Kevin helped hundreds of local students through their high school education.
