He was born as Kevin Michael Thomas Brettauer in Los Angeles, California and graduated in 2007 with a degree in Film and TV Studies from a University in New York. He is working in the "Comics" section for the independent media magazine PopMatters. 
In 2009, he summed up his opinion on Star Trek at that point: "...the last ten years (since "What You Leave Behind", the pulse-pounding series finale of Deep Space Nine) has seen a complete dearth of quality Trek on television, the silver screen and even the printed page. The heartless Next Generation films continued to pour out of Paramount Studios like water dripping from a broken faucet, and the final few years of Voyager were foisted on the viewers of the already-dying UPN network. To add insult to injury, completely superficial and emotionless tales continued to appear in novels, anthologies and comics, and, as perhaps the final nail in the franchise’s already steel-lined coffin, the failure of the ill-conceived prequel Enterprise forced fans to wonder if they were watching a spin-off of Gene Roddenberry’s original universe or some sort of Karl Rove-programmed propaganda for the then-current Bush administration. Needless to say, if it feels like a decade since we’ve been graced with good Star Trek, it’s because it has been a decade".
