KB-Render | Kevin Bruno 

Kevin Bruno is the son of an architect, so he grew up surrounded by architecture his whole life, and unsurprisingly, decided that he would follow this interest as an adult.  

Kevin attended the New York Institute of Technology. He chose the college because it seemed to him to have the best mix of both the artistic side of architecture and the technical side, and he wanted to get the best of both worlds. After finishing his degree, Kevin relocated from Long Island to Las Vegas to work and focus on his areas of interest.  

Kevin is a BIM Leader and focuses on the technological realm of the architecture field. In addition to his day job, he teaches Revit courses and is working on his own projects, which are discussed further in today’s interview.   

In addition to his professional activities, Kevin stays busy with personal activities as well, including participating in Spartan races. Listen in to hear what Kevin has to say about establishing goals, maintaining a routine, and keeping up with an intense schedule.
