Chief Operating Officer
"Keep showing up."
Kevin Huynh (pronounced “hwin”) develops experiences and services that prompt meaningful interactions.
He currently leads the headquarters of CreativeMornings, an organization that fosters creativity around the world through in-person events. Starting with a dozen volunteers in four cities, he scaled the global community to what it is today: local programs coordinated by 700 organizers across 104 cities (44 countries). In 2014, CreativeMornings won the .net award for Grassroots Event of the Year.
Previously, Kevin was Program Manager for The Feast Conference in New York. He helped create the company’s “Worldwide” initiative which spawned dozens of community hubs. His creative marketing ideas have resulted in over a million dollars in partnerships with brands like: Intel, Facebook, Squarespace, MailChimp, Shutterstock, and Microsoft.
Many of Kevin’s independent projects explore human stories, such as the Common Camera Project, a Kickstarter-funded world tour of 300 disposable cameras; and ThanksForTeaching.Us, a platform to appreciate great educators. His other projects have less of a coherent theme but still incite immense personal satisfaction.
Kevin holds a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley. Raised in Colorado, he currently lives above a killer taqueria in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
