Kevin directs the Foundation and the Rainer Arnhold Fellows Program. He had a perfectly good career in medicine when he stumbled into philanthropy in 1994. His friend and mentor Rainer Arnhold died suddenly when they were working together in Bolivia, and the Arnhold family asked Kevin to help carry on Rainer's work through the Mulago Foundation. He spent the next decade working with projects from Afghanistan to Zambia, trying to figure out what makes for real impact at big scale. At the behest of the board, he established the Rainer Arnhold Fellows Program in 2003 to apply Mulago's principles and tools to help social entrepreneurs turn good ideas into lasting change at scale.
Kevin went through medical school and residency at UC San Francisco and has lived in SF ever since. He teaches and mentors fellows in other programs for social entrepreneurs and still practices medicine (very) part time.
