Kevin is our right-hand man to Chef Chris at Benaroya Hall, a position he is familiar with, as he has, quite literally, grown up at the chef’s table. 

Kevin remembers when his culinary interest was first piqued at age four hanging out at the chef’s table in the kitchen of The Westin Hotel in Washington DC where his dad was the food and beverage manager. “I grew up in the industry, so I’ve always been into food and have known my path was to be a Chef.” Says Kevin, “I love giving people a great experience and knowing that the food I prepare is enjoyed.” Since then, Kevin has worked in a variety of kitchens, from fancy dining clubs like the Bellevue Club and the Ruins, to a private yacht summering in Alaska. 

Keep a look-out for Kevin ‘on the line’ at Davids & Co, except on Sounders game days when he’ll be rooting for the home team with the other season ticket holders.
