Kevin rejoined the California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) with great enthusiasm in May 2015. He previously worked for CBSC from September 2010 to December 2013, primarily as a legislative analyst. Due to the Governor’s Reorganization Plan in 2012, CBSC became a commission within the Department of General Services (DGS). The reorganization created an opportunity for Kevin to work in the DGS Office of Legislative Affairs from January 2014 to April 2015, where he coordinated legislative activities for several offices and divisions (including CBSC).
His new responsibilities at CBSC are diverse. He assists technical staff in the development of building standard regulations for the triennial and intervening code adoption cycles administered by CBSC, as well as periodic Change Without Regulatory Effect and emergency regulations, as necessary. He coordinates the codification and publication of the California Building Standards Code (Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations), including the triennial editions of the codes, intervening and emergency supplements, and errata. Additionally, he advises executive staff on various state policies and procedures, manages special projects, and contributes extensively to the CBSC legislative analysis process.
Prior to his appointments with CBSC he worked as an Office Technician for the State and Consumer Services Agency (SCSA). In his role at SCSA he provided administrative assistance to the general counsel and the insurance advisor, performing a variety of tasks including legislative tracking, processing constituent correspondence, and helping to facilitate the quarterly SCSA Business Continuity Committee meetings.
Before entering state service Kevin worked in several areas of the private sector, which included commercial maintenance, telecommunications, and the restaurant industry. Kevin earned an Associate of Arts degree from Sacramento City College and a Bachelor of Arts in English at California State University, Sacramento. He enjoys all forms of entertainment media, including literature, music, film, television, video games, trivia, and comic books.
