Beyond the mask …
I have know Kevin as a Fencing Coach, a Referee Assignor, and as a Mentor starting when I was 10 receiving my very first national medal in Y10 ME.
I am now at the college of my dreams studying to be a Biomedical Engineer on the banks of the Hudson River overlooking Manhattan.
I work with the Stevens Institute of Technology Board of Directors for Student Philanthropy.
I have won medals nationally and internationally, become a high ranked National USA Fencing Referee, and fenced at the NCAA Championships.
Kevin has always been there to give me direction and advice, introduce me to people and open doors. I have traveled the world and made friends. My college roommate is a fencer from another club who I meet at camp back when I was in middle school.

My life has gone a long way from when I first met Kevin. Now I’m in my final semester pursuing my Master’s degree in Physiotherapy.
I have also started to study the “Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist” to better educate myself to aid my future patients. Recently, I worked with the Polish National Junior Team in fencing and in a few days I’m flying to the Fencing Junior European Championships as a physiotherapist. I am still actively participating in fencing competition.
Last season I won the Polish Academic Championships, I was 3rd in the Polish U-23 championships and qualified for the University Games in Naples where I represented my country. Lastly, I am regularly practicing at my club ZKS Sosnowiec as well as being a coach for the youngest children.
I stay in touch with him to this day. Kevin, who is an epee coach and international referee, was very welcoming and we had several valuable conversations.
