Esports Program Specialist
Orange County Department of Education

KEVIN BROWN thought he would be a life-long hotelier, working with 5-star properties like Four Seasons Hotels He found his way into education after the massive shift in the hospitality market post-911. Kevin taught career technical education classes (primarily hotel hospitality and management) for the Orange Unified School District in California before being recruited to open a massive hotel project in Newport Coast, CA. Kevin returned to career technical education just in time to catch the rising tide of educational restructuring through esports, where he puts his years of experience as a gamer, classroom chops and a passion to meet kids where they are to the test every day.
