During his time in New York, he wanted to improve Asian American representation in media. He also spoke about the perceptions of mental health and Asian masculinity. Kevin thought of starting a new life as a model after being inspired by the models, Godfrey Gao and Daniel Liu. The two models were the world’s first Asian male supermodels.
