Kevin Keen is an FS family member in Buenos Aires, where his FSO spouse is on his first tour.

Kevin works remotely for the Switzerland-based Global Fund and has lived in Ecuador, Argentina

and Switzerland. Previously a television news reporter, he is familiar with the video medium,

America, he says, has limitless opportunities to practice picture taking.
