Founder / President
Kevin can’t stop skateboarding. For over 20 years, the challenge, creative outlet, and community formed around skating has become a part of him. After moving to Brooklyn in 2005, he began practicing yoga and found this to be the perfect balance to his skateboarding.
Kevin is passionate about promoting a healthy and sustainable urban lifestyle for kids and adults. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology and a Master of Science in Environmental Health from the Harvard School of Public Health. Through SKATEYOGI group classes, afterschool and camp programs, as well as skate trips all around the world, Kevin has shared his love of skateboarding and learning with thousands of students.
Cory met Kevin in the 90s in Boston through skateboarding and they reunited in 2013 in NYC. Prior to joining SKATEYOGI, he ran the skateboarding program at East Village Community High School (12th and A) and worked as a skateboard instructor at Friends Seminary. Besides skateboarding, Cory is passionate about music and can often be found DJing while teaching classes at SKATEYOGI.
