Kevenfati G. Aguirre (Kev)

AV Technician

Please allow us to introduce you to Keven Aguirre. Kev (to his friends) grew up in an American community called Flosden Road. It was one of those small neighborhoods where everyone knew each other and there were plenty of kids his own age to play with. He is currently finishing up his last year at Napa Valley College for his associates in math and science. After he receives that degree, he is going to transfer to UC Davis where he will work on his bachelors in business. Kev's best friend works in the AV industry and loves his job so it was an easy decision for Kev to join the AVMS team. The coolest technology that he's ever seen was the home theater setup at his uncle's home where the visuals were projected and the images were clear and visible. It was definitely the best graphics he's ever seen. During his free time, Kev enjoys playing video games with friends, having barbecues with his family, watching or playing football, and listening to music. He thinks the key to his success has been to stay consistent and motivated. Kev's favorite quote is "Growing takes change and challenge." Some day, he hopes to visit Hawaii because he's always wanted to see live volcanoes and try some of their fresh fish dishes. J. Cole is his favorite artist because he touches on real issues in society and confronts them in his music.
