Buy Me a Burrito

Who Dis?

My name is Kevin N. Murphy, Welcome! and thank you so much for stopping by. I built this site to let you know a bit about myself and what I work on.

As of Q4 2020 I am booking new work. Let’s talk

I have a wide range of professional experience but here are a few specific areas I have valuable expertise

  • Product Management/SaaS Operations
  • No-code and low-code development
  • making art ( video and photography )
  • web development / solution engineering
  • media operations, event production A/V (live and remote)

Lately I’ve been filming Hummingbirds. As a young teenager, I discovered yo-yos and was quickly hired by stores to perform demonstrations and teach classes around Central Florida. My most recent photo projects explore places at night and clouds. Some good friends nicknamed me “Burrito Murphy”.

I co-founded the media agency FRANK back in 2011. The bulk of my media, event production work is done in partnership with FRANK. We’ve filmed hundreds of videos for the aesthetic medicine industry, doctors and nurse practitioners, as well as medical equipment manufactures. These productions were mostly happening live on conference exhibit floors where the pressure can really be intense with schedules and the feeling everyone is watching. In many ways the production itself was the exhibit but we still had to get good takes! It was a fun couple of years but then COVID-19 put an end to in-person events. Thinking of doing a virtual event? Don’t waste your budget on low impact time bound events. Now that in-person events are such a risky investment, what should you invest in? Build a community. Lets talk! Need to shoot something remotely at high quality? Building out your home video studio? I can help with that as well. (Sigh… nope Airpods and home WiFi is not enough.)

In 2015 I joined my brother Elliot at his company Kindly Ops (Cloud Security, DevOps, Compliance for Regulated Industries). As the first employee I played various roles: from building out our first website (we went with Jamstack, just like this site!) to acting as project manager for Pentest engagements, performing cloud security assessments and writing reports, teaching and mentoring junior developers and interns. Kindly Ops acquired Chirpy Hire in February 2019, and Enlist.io in September 2019. I took over as product manager after each of the acquisitions and really enjoyed the intense ramp up we did to keep both products running while learning the new (to us) systems. It’s a great way to hire remotely https://go.enlist.io.

In 2018 my wife Whitney and I started a test hair salon for a new way of hairdressing she had come up with. It’s called The Parlor Seattle, and unlike any other salon, safety is emphasized. This results in an experience like no other, one where life is valued as it should be. This does mean slowing things down, and paying more attention but the results are amazing and the future is here. While I help with operations and strategy Whitney gets 100% of the credit for the coaching and safety education she’s created for a group of workers that are so overlooked when it comes to occupational health hazards and chronic illness. If there is a hairdresser you love in your life, you need to send them to Whitney and her team of Safe Hair Stylist coaches!

Thanks for taking the time to come by, like I mentioned above, as of Q4 2020 I’m open for new projects.If you have a project you’d like to discuss please setup an appointment below.
