Season Hughes nominated him and wrote:

Kevin took a chance on hiring me - I have zero formal SEO experience - and has spent a significant amount of his own time training me in technical SEO, involving me in projects, providing industry news and blogs, and sharing SEO conferences and groups with me. He's patiently shown me the ropes of in-house SEO, and I am forever grateful. Outside of Atlassian, he's had 12 years of SEO experience through his own sites, consulting, mentoring through German Accelerator, speaking, podcasts, and a bi-weekly newsletter. He also trains for weightlifting competitions and is a wealth of knowledge on health and fitness.

Favorite thing about the SEO community? My favorite thing about the SEO community is the sharing 🙏🏻. Without it, SEO cannot exist. I remember, when I learned SEO as a young kid in rural Germany, it was the meetups and articles from which I learned the most. That inherent willingness to collaborate is what I love about the SEO community.

One piece of advice to the SEOs out there? Share and receive. Don't keep the secrets to yourself, put 'em out there! Usually, you get paid back twice.

Favorite things in general? People who know me know that I spend most of my time I'm not working in the gym 🏋🏻. I compete in Powerlifting and competed in Crossfit and Weightlifting before. It's the perfect balance to sitting at the desk all day and kind of a meditation for me. I have an Instagram account solely dedicated to my fitness endeavors (which is what Instagram is for).

What you want to be known for in the SEO space? In the SEO space, I want to be known as the guy who puts out fresh, valuable and exciting content, instead of beating dead horses. I want to be known for entertaining and informative presentations, fascinating podcasts and amazing blog articles. I'm working really, really hard at living up to the people I look up to 💪🏻.
