He attended high school in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan and in 1982 signed up for service with the Air Command of the Canadian Forces. He served for three years.

In 2010, Kevin was elected Member of Parliament for Winnipeg North. In the 117 days between his election and the call for a general election, Kevin worked hard to get results for Winnipeg North and although only there for a short time, left a lasting impression on his fellow MPs.
