Prior to that, Kevin worked in San Francisco for the cleantech startup Climos, designing technology to remove large quantities of CO2 from the atmosphere by enhancing natural biological absorption in the ocean. Solving the problem of climate change has been the focus of his career after learning about it while studying geology in between surf sessions as an undergraduate physics major at UC San Diego in 1990. After studying permafrost dynamics in Antarctica for his M.S. in Geology, Kevin switched to the private sector to work as a consultant in the fields of CO2 mitigation, energy efficiency and renewable energy.
