Kevin Anderson was born in Portsmouth, Virginia on June 5, 1980. As a child in a military family, he moved all over the US and had lived in 5 states by the time he was 10 years old. After settling in Toms River, NJ Kevin's parents took notice of his love of drawing and purchase a drafting table and enrolled him into a summer illustration program. Kevin later went on to take mechanical drawing classes in hopes of becoming an engineer, but soon decided to "follow the money" and pursue a degree in biology at The University of Tennessee.

It wasn't long before fate led him back into the communications field. While stuying advertising in college, he continually learned design applications in his spare time. After graduating, Kevin teamed up with a college friend to start a small graphic design company in Nashville, TN specializing in custom publishing. During that time, the two also launched a successful urban music/culture magazine as well. After parting ways years later, Kevin relocated to the Washington, DC area and began working for a government contractor while embarking on his own entrepreneural mission as well.

Kevin currently works as a full time graphics specialist and is an accomplised freelance photographer. In 2009, he incorporated Optimal Enterprise/Optimal Engraving, a company to showcase all of his creative skills under one umbrella. Optimal Enterprise currently offer services in design (print and web), photography, personalized engraving and custom framing. A graduate of the University of Tennessee (2002) with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Advertising Comminucations, Kevin is currently a student of the Art Institute of Washington studying Web Design/Interactive Media.
