After starting Sentor Media in 1995, Kevin quickly became a bestselling Canadian author. He has focused on career directories with such popular titles as The Canada Student Employment Guide, The Canadian Internet Job Search Guide, The Canadian Hidden Job Market Directory and The Canadian Summer Job Directory.

He went on to publish other titles such as Get Wired, You're Hired!, Hire Power, The Job of Your Life, Ten Ways to Straight A's, Best Canadian Resumes and Best Canadian Cover Letters. Early on, Kevin opened one of Canada's first online bookstores - CareerBookstore.ca which is used by schools, libraries and employment centres. 

With over 100,000 copies of his books sold, Kevin is featured in many newspaper articles and television appearances as the foremost expert in career options and the job search. He is a regular columnist for Workopolis.com, contributing thought provoking and inspiring articles.

Kevin's latest title, The Directory of Careers & Employment in Canada, is a culmination of all his books and they are also available online through this website. His main focus has always been to help students and professionals prepare for success!

In addition to managing his own company, Kevin has played leadership roles in growing other businesses – first as Business Consultant to the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, and more recently as the Director of Merchandising for Entruphema Inc., a world-leader in streaming video content over the Internet.

Kevin is currently developing a brand new website, CareerPlum, to help students and professionals launch their careers in IT. Check out this short video to learn about the concept!
