Oakland, California native Kevin Eastman thrives on simplicity and logic. A skilled speaker, mentor, and community activist with a “tell it like it is” mentality, he shoots from the hip when assisting people with personal development. His mission (and passion) is to assist people with overcoming the obstacles they face, no matter how minor or major they are. One of his favorite philosophies is, "Obstacles, barriers, and challenges are only as large as you make them in your head."

A graduate of Castlemont High School, Kevin wore the U.S. Air Force uniform for over 20 years on active duty, working at locations around the world, in multiple capacities. These included stints as a military training instructor (commonly known as a "drill instructor"), and as a recruiter, at the high school, college, and post-graduate levels. In these positions, he interacted with thousands of people and personalities.

Kevin has earned education degrees from the Community College of the Air Force, Columbia Southern University, and Azusa Pacific University, respectively. He also holds certifications in Marketing, Professional Selling Skills, and Sales Coaching.

Married and residing in Southern California, Kevin enjoys being involved with community development and improvement efforts as a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, sports, traveling, watching movies, listening to music, writing, cooking, meeting people, and spending time with family and friends.

Additional Information

Writing Roots


I became a writer by accident! I started writing down my experiences as part of a personal reflection assignment from a fantastic mentor. However, as I started examining them more closely, I realized that I couldn't be the only person who could benefit from what I learned. As a result, an author was born!

Writing style


Right now, the majority of my writing is non-fiction, and I usually base it on personal experience, logic, and observation, but I'll never put limits on myself. If a fictional story pops into my head, and I'm motivated to write it, it will come to pass!
