Since his electrocution and return from death in 1968, Kevin has devoted his life to turning his dreams into reality. At age 16, he became a professional actor, and worked steadily for the next decade in theatre, both On and Off Broadway in New York, as well as in film. Training in his chosen profession consisted of: The American Academy of Dramatic Arts; The Actor's Studio; The HB Studio; and with Stella Adler, all in New York City.
In 1989, Kevin burst onto the national scene when he broke the near-impossible Guinness World Record of traveling the entire length of the New York Subway system in 26 hours, 21 minutes, 08 seconds. A year later, he followed up that accomplishment with becoming the first and only person to ride a bicycle, from one end to the other, atop the Great Wall of China, covering some 2000 miles, and earning the 1990 Cyclist of the Year award over his friend, 3-time Tour de France champion, Greg LeMond. Needless to say, Kevin took a serious detour from his acting career.
The 90s became one rollercoaster ride after another for Kevin when he followed up the "last, greatest cycling adventure on the face of the earth" with the AMERICAN SUMMITS tour of placing a full scale mountain bike atop the highest natural point in each of the 50 united States, and the tip-to-tip, 1158-mile, TOUR de CUBA, the longest bicycle trek in that nation's history.
Upon retiring from a career in adventure cycling in 1998, Kevin devoted much of his time to charity work before returning to his acting roots in 2004, adding Producing and Writing credits to his list with his debut feature film, Yesterday’s Dreams. He followed that project up by producing the feature length documentary, Hollywood on Fire, as well as producing the music CD, Saber Bytes, which held the #1 spot on college radio throughout North America during the Summer of 2009.
Mr. Foster has also been honored with entries in: WHO'S WHO IN THE WORLD; WHO'S WHO IN AMERICA; and OUTSTANDING INTELLECTUALS OF THE 21st CENTURY.
