Kevin Houchin’s Bio
Kevin E. Houchin lawyers from a wholly different perspective. Kevin knew from a very young age that his purpose in life was to help people reach their potential. Entering law school at 33 enabled him to mindfully integrate his experience as a graphic designer and his dozen or so years as a small business and brand development consultant. His artistic eye, his marketing skills, and his legal knowledge combine to make him a highly effective counselor.
Kevin advises creative people on how to maximize creativity, build businesses, and protect intellectual property. He enjoys discussions that turn toward relationships and creative collaboration which enable him to play the role of business and life coach in addition to attorney and marketing consultant.
Kevin writes about how to get the most out of law school in his book Fuel the Spark: 5 Guiding Values for Success in Law School & Beyond. He is also the author of the forthcoming The Secrets of Creative Business. Both books are published by Morgan James Publishing. He also contributes a chapter on the legal issues of social media in Twitter Power: How to Dominate Your Market One Tweet at a Time, by Joel Comm (Wiley Publishing).
Kevin writes a regular column for the leading business journal in Northern Colorado, blogs compulsively, and has a large following on Twitter.com. He speaks regularly for creative entrepreneurial business, continuing legal education, and law school audiences.
Kevin’s diverse background helps him provide expert counsel to people seeking to reach their creative potential. To fuel his own spark of creativity, Kevin enjoys creating fine art and cooking without a recipe. His favorite art medium is batik, because it combines his design and planning skills with an element of chance. His favorite cooking medium is the grill because it is a perfect catalyst for a really rockin’ party.
A native Iowan, Kevin is an active father and husband. He lives with his wife and their three children in the mountains outside Fort Collins, Colorado where on a clear day you really can see forever.[ad#horizontal]
