Kevin became the Director of the Center for Adventist Research in August 2021. He is also an Assistant Director of the Ellen G. White Estate and an Assistant Professor in the Church History Department at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University.
He was first employed at the Center for Adventist Research between 2012 and 2015 as a graduate assistant while he completed his Master of Arts in Religion at the Seminary. During this period, he digitized photographs and input the corresponding metadata, which often required research. In September 2014, he was hired as an Adventist Digital Library staff member. In that capacity, he wrote articles for the Adventist Digital Library, conducted a series of interviews, transcribed documents in Pitman shorthand, and created a digital collection on Seventh-day Adventist inventors.
He left the Center for Adventist Research in December 2015 to pursue a Ph.D. in Religion at Florida State University with a primary emphasis in American Religious History and a secondary emphasis in Race Studies. His doctoral dissertation focuses on Adventist involvement in the abolition movement. He has also published several book reviews, encyclopedia entries, monograph chapters, and journal articles on Millerite and Seventh-day Adventist history. He has previously taught at Florida State University and was an Instructor in American History at Southern Adventist University between 2019 and 2021.
