As the Canadian-born son of refugees from the Vietnam War, Kevin knows what it’s like to roll up his sleeves and get things done. He lives by values of hard work and perseverance and is dedicated to celebrating the diversity of Toronto.
A former banker and University of Toronto law school graduate, Kevin is currently a Lecturer in the Faculty of Medicine’s Translational Research Program at his alma mater and serves as an Officer in the Canadian Forces Naval Reserve.
Kevin has held several leadership positions within the community as the President of the Board for the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, President of his Condominium Board, Chair of the Southcore Residents’ Association, and Board Director for Friends of Fort York. His leadership efforts have not gone unnoticed, being named one of Canada’s Top 30 Under 30 and Her Majesty the Queen’s Young Leader for Canada.
Expanding on his years of professional leadership, Kevin has worked with developers and the City of Toronto to provide services for vertical communities such as building wider, accessible sidewalks and minimizing noise during construction. Kevin advocates for improved transit and is building bridges within the community by founding and leading the King Street Eats initiative.
Kevin’s focus is building a community within Ward 20 that is liveable and vibrant; where residents are engaged, local businesses are supported, and disadvantaged communities are provided with opportunities to thrive.
Let’s work together to make great things happen.
