    Kevin began his career at KBA as a summer intern in 1974, after his return from a year of studies in Italy with the Notre Dame Rome Studies Program. Upon graduation from the University of Notre Dame in 1977, Kevin earned his Bachelor of Architecture degree, and began working full time for KBA. For more than 35 years, he has managed or designed many building types, and served multiple roles on projects.

    His commissions have included, many new or renovated public schools, university work, hospital design, transportation centers, police and fire stations, office buildings, and historically significant structures.

    Kevin became President of KBA in 1997, and is involved in all aspects of business development within the firm.

    He believes creating a quality environment, starts with a foundation of understanding of what the building occupants hope to achieve and perform on a daily basis, and frees us up to enjoy what we do and accomplish more in our efforts. This result is achieved in his role as architect, but also in the role he serves as Owner's Project Manager, on numerous building types and for clients throughout the Commonwealth.

    Outside of KBA, Kevin was President of his Rotary Club, coached youth soccer for many years, and volunteered for improvement projects within his Town. Most importantly, he loves spending time with his family, and they are all big fans of any sort of beach or boating activity.


    Vice President

    Dan started working at KBA as an intern in 1979 while attending the University of Notre Dame. After receiving his Bachelor of Architecture degree he worked with KBA until 1986 and then tested the waters by working at several other firms over a 12 year period to broaden his exposure to the profession. Dan returned to KBA as a partner in 1998.

    He enjoys the challenges that come with owning a company but is particularly interested in mentoring, challenging and watching the talented people who work with him at KBA grow into experienced workers in the architectural profession. Although he is fond of traditions, Dan feels there is always the potential and need for growth and change so he enjoys incorporating new ideas into the workplace and experiencing the excitement that the infusion of change can bring to the employees and the work setting.

    He brings his positive attitude, work ethic and experience to each client and project. Dan enjoys being involved with the entire process of hearing initial ideas evolve and change into real solutions and completed works. Though he has worked on hundreds of projects, his energy, excitement and thirst to continue working on projects is strong.

    When he is not at KBA, Dan enjoys spending time with his family and friends, travelling, golfing, sports in general, birds, the ocean and nice sunny days.


    Heather has worked for KBA for 15 years, growing from receptionist to office manager. She truly enjoys talking to and building relationships with many clients, consultants and contractors. In her spare time, Heather enjoys watching her boys play baseball and football as well as getting together with friends, BBQ-ing and playing washers.


    Lee is a sucker for good design. He loves how the details of a project can inspire the whole. Had he not become an architect, you would see him on stage as a guitarist for a major rock band. The practice needed for becoming an excellent musician is similar to the time spent perfecting a design.


    After receiving his BA in Architecture and Associates in Architectural Engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology, Tony took his professional career to commercial, academic, retail and high-end residential design projects. He values the production of thoughtful design and focus on energy efficient and sustainable building practice, while providing solutions to the design problems, needs and requirements of the client. Tony’s personal interests include art and digital photography. He is also an automobile enthusiast and hopes to someday club race at an amateur level.


    Erik is a graduate of the University of Arizona College of Architecture. His decision to study architecture came from a lifelong interest in drawing, painting, and the overall creative process. He is an outdoor enthusiast, and enjoys hiking and fishing. Erik joined the KBA team in 2011 and works as a drafter and designer. His architectural interests lie in sustainability and the design of the academic environment.

  • KRISTY LYONS, LEED Green Associate, MCPPO

    Kristy started at KBA several years ago as a summer design intern. A recent graduate of Roger Williams University with a Master's of Architecture and a minor in Construction Management, Kristy now works full-time as an Assistant Project Manager, helping with the management of several OPM and green repair projects. Outside of the office, you will find Kristy working at Fenway Park or traveling.


    Mary received her BS in Marine Engineering from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. From there, she has dedicated over 20 years to public construction as an owner’s project manager.


    John is a graduate of Boston College and received his Masters of Architecture degree from The Boston Architectural College. He has been a licensed and practicing architect since 2004. John has managed projects as both an architect and a contractor and has been successful guiding projects from inception to completion for over 15 years. He believes every successful project requires clear communication and collaboration between the owner, architect and contractor in order to define and then meet or exceed expectations.


    Christine’s values are driven by her passion for creative problem solving. She enjoys the early stages of design and helping the big ideas evolve throughout the design process. With over 12 years in the architecture industry, she has learned that architecture is an organic process very similar to painting: the beginning is about big strokes and having a clear understanding of the big picture, and as time goes by, the details surface and the imagery becomes rich in form and philosophy. Christine plans to take her ARE exams and receive her architecture license.


    Cheryl is new to the world of architecture, but her role as receptionist at KBA is rapidly enhancing her professional knowledge of the industry. Cheryl's many interests include travelling with family and friends, cooking, the theater and attending any of her three children’s’ many activities including college plays, high school music concerts, and little league baseball games. She also enjoys the company of her many friends and family. Cheryl is also the Treasurer on her hometown’s Cultural Council.


    Although Christine never received a degree in Accounting, she is not lacking experience. She has been a bookkeeper for 47 years, the last 12 years with KBA. She loves working for KBA because of the comfortable family atmosphere. She also loves a great restaurant, good movies and the ocean…and, let's not forget about those Birthday Cakes.


    Steve began his architectural career while studying Architecture at UMass Amherst. He continued on to graduate from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and has been working in the field for 25 years. He joined the KBA team as a Project Manager in 2009. Outside of the office, Steve is hugely involved in his community, serving as the chair of the Historical Commission, coaching pop Warner football, and working with the school department. He also enjoys a good round of tennis and golf as well as travelling.


    Information to come.


    Mike was originally drawn into architecture because of its creative nature, but the relationships that have been cultivated since that time have kept him in the profession. The moments of collaboration with great people are when he truly realizes the value of his career.
