About Kevin Walsh

Kev has served in a variety of roles at CivicActions since 2008, bringing over 17 years of technical experience along with a strong understanding of the business needs of nongovernmental organizations and agencies. As a Technical and Development Lead on Drupal projects, Kev led over 15 agile development efforts for clients including BikeNYC, ASPCA, Greenpeace UK, the MIT’s Centre for Civic Media, and Save the Children. 

As UX Specialist, Kev contributes extensive experience with content strategy, information architecture, database design, digital mapping, and the Scrum framework to provide flexible solutions that suit the evolving needs of a range of clients. He thrives on challenge and leads teams to successful delivery of high value products for time-sensitive and high-profile projects.

Kev cut his tech teeth working for broke nonprofits and social movements in the late 90s. When he discovered open source software, he plunged headlong into the web, and has become adept at a variety of roles ranging from content strategy to project management to Drupal development. You might consider him a tech janitor.

When he’s not working at his computer, you can find Kev romping in the woods of Ontario with his wife and kids, where they enjoy an outdoors-y lifestyle complete with mountain biking, cider brewing, turkey-raising, and gardening.
