Kevin DeYoe

Director of Technology

Kevin has been with Park Boulevard since 2010, assuming the role of Senior Technician in 2015 and Director of Technology in 2016. He has a deep fascination with making complicated things work, which has led him to work on some very bizarre and interesting projects surrounding how people interact with technology. A graduate of New York University’s Music Technology program, Kevin is an experienced audio, video, and lighting engineer who has worked at a number of live performance venues and studios including Radio City Music Hall and Lincoln Center, and has recorded or worked on the crew for artists such as Ben Folds, Manchester Orchestra, John Oates, Paul McCartney, Ne-Yo, and John Legend. Kevin is also an active composer, whose music can most notably be heard in the best-selling XBox indie games Zombie Estate and Zombie Estate 2. When he has free time, he prefers to spend it with his wife and cat, going on a hike, exploring the city, or simply sitting at home watching TV or reading a good book.
