Hello, I’m Kevin!


I was born and raised in the wine country of Sonoma County, California, and joined the U. S. Navy from San Francisco in May of 1999. I am a graduate student at Georgetown University with one capstone project remaining before taking my Master’s Degree in Emergency and Disaster Management

I currently serve as the Radiological Emergency Preparedness Director of Regulatory Affairs and Oversight for the US Navy Nuclear Propulsion Program in the State of California. I am responsible for regulatory oversight of all regional emergency preparedness efforts for the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program in the State of California, including training, exercises, and outreach with federal, state, and local authorities. I am responsible for oversight of all San Diego emergency control center personnel, including command staff, public information officers, and engineering, reactor plant and radiological technical branches.

I work as a nuclear propulsion plant operations technical expert for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and U.S. Navy, specializing in pressurized water nuclear reactor operations onboard U.S. aircraft carriers and submarines. Although now in a civilian role at the DOE, I am still an active duty Naval Officer, and have served several tours of duty on multiple aircraft carriers. I taught nuclear operations to DOD, DOE, and Lockheed Martin students at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory’s Kesselring Site in New York from 2004-2007 and have deployed overseas in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on four occasions.

I have traveled extensively with the U.S. Navy, visiting such countries as Thailand, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, China, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain.

My current duties require oversight of thousands of engineers, managers, inspectors, and production workers at a 1,000+ employee fleet activity site and 15,000+ employee Naval shipyard to ensure regulatory compliance of all joint DOE/DOD Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program requirements.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resources Management from The New School University’s Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy, New York, NY. Additionally, I have studied radiological emergency planning at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health and business administration with emphasis in sustainability at Seattle University’s Albers School of Business and Economics.
