Kevin Keplar - Storyteller, Educator
I have been a media and marketing professional since graduating with a Master's degree in Communication.

Executive Director, Tallgrass Film Association
Kevin has been a wonderful asset to the Tallgrass Film Association in many ways – from teaching workshops on sound design and technique to working with visiting filmmakers. He has such a broad knowledge of the field which includes classical techniques and current industry trends. His professionalism is bolstered by his generosity and talent, making him a pleasure to work with across many audio-visual platforms. I have learned a great deal from him about the art of sound, as well as best practices when working on a film set.
Communications Specialist, IMA Financial Group
I worked with Kevin Keplar during an important funding proposal that the American Red Cross Midway-Kansas Chapter completes annually. Kevin’s talent and expertise guided the development of the audio-visual piece. The final product Kevin helped produce motivated key stakeholders to award the Midway-Kansas Chapter more than $1.15 million.
Director of Customer Service, Efficio Solutions
I worked closely with Kevin when I was in media sales and he was in media programing. The two HAVE to work hand in hand…we have two customers in media – the listener/viewer and the client – and both have to be served. Kevin was one of the few I have known in my career who understood this and catered to both. He had a wealth of ideas that he was willing to share. He asked excellent questions to come up with strategic plans. He understood the importance of sales, and was always willing to go the extra mile for the client. I also found Kevin to be a quick study and versatile. I enjoy and admire his quick wit, intellect, coupled with a kind and caring personality.
