Kevin Lapin

about

After receiving a degree in French and Education from Dartmouth College, Kevin lived in Paris for several years working in turns as a teacher, translator, waiter at a Sri Lankan run Tex-Mex restaurant and finally as a financial journalist covering the French future’s exchange market. Good times.

Kevin returned to the great Northwest just in time to land a job working for this new online bookstore, right in the iridescent midst of the great dot-com bubble. In addition to helping launch a website from an office park somewhere in Slough, England, Kevin worked as a customer service representative, trainer and marketing manager organizing promotional auctions, including one that involved producers from the Oprah Winfrey show yelling at him on the phone every day for several hours.

Around this time, Kevin began studying movement and theater methods at the Freehold Studio Lab and performed in several small Seattle fringe productions. He also toured elementary schools performing stories written by students as a member of the Imaginators.

Kevin eventually left his day job working at Amazon to pursue theater and acting full-time which led him back to France, where in addition to ingesting lots of stinky cheese and wine, he trained at the inimitable Lecoq school.

In France, he co-created the absurdly fun Mad Maths (over 500 performances and counting!) and is the co-founder of the theater company Sous un autre Angle, under whose auspices he also produced and performed in the award winning Brementown for the Avingon festival.

In New York, Kevin is proud to be a company member of The Nerve Tank and a co-founder of the Gold No Trade theater company with whom he helped create Floating Brothel and other great plays.

Recently Kevin decided to go back to school to become a health care provider (just like his dear old dad). He is now a board certified adult health nurse practitioner and works as a health care provider at the Sunrise Medical Group in Brooklyn.

Kevin has traveled extensively in Europe, Africa and Asia and lives with his beautiful wife Debbie.
