"I am a numbers person and a people person. I suppose I could have become a ‘friendly’ engineer, but financial planning feels more natural."Kevin gives a great deal of credit for his duality to his father, a chiropractor. "I grew up watching him run a profitable business and focus on the individual needs of his patients at the same time. It taught me that a career doesn’t have to be an either-or choice. It can be both." Those of us at Abacus would like to send a big "thanks" to Kevin’s dad for inspiring the characteristics we admire in a colleague.
A little surprise factoid: Kevin is a self-described "movie fanatic" who does hilarious and scary imitations of outsized film personalities – ala the Joker in Dark Knight. (A talent that, in all likelihood, plays better at Abacus than in an engineer’s office.)
