About Me 📖

This is a story all about how...

My life got flipped turned upside down by HTML email...seriously.

My name is Kevin Mandeville. I'm a 29-year old HTML email designer & developer born and bred near Boston, MA.

I took an Intro to HTML course my freshman year of high school in 2004. I made text move across the screen with the <marquee> tag in my first class. It was love at first pixel 😍. From there, I started pimping out MySpace profiles and taught myself how to code. I've haven't stopped since (coding that is, not MySpace 😂).

Then, I begrudingly got "stuck" doing HTML email in my first full-time job. Once mastering the quirks, I learned to love it and I've since become immensely passionate about email design. I spent 5 years at Litmus building innovative email campaigns and the code editor for email, Litmus Builder. I host The Kevin Mandeville Show every week. I've also written about and spoken at a few events on the topic of HTML email design & development.

Outside of email, I'm a diehard Boston sports fan and never miss a game. I'm pretty nifty at streetball and was probably a Harlem Globetrotter in a former life. If you didn't notice, I'm on team Oxford Comma. Cape Cod, my childhood summer home, is now my adult home and I can never get enough beach & skimboarding time each summer.
