From there he went on to be an author, correspondent and artist. "Kevin James Moore is the greatest author of his generation. He has written for over 300 publications. He is a former United Nations correspondent. The man is a legend."Kevin, also known as alienbrain, K-Dawg, KMO and Y2K, spent his whole life in Greenwich and made great contributions during his 34 jam-packed years. He enjoyed turtle hunting and frequented the Mianus River to hone his skills with his brothers and father. A talented athlete, he played for many sports teams in the area and won countless championships. He gained fame playing for the Glenville Mavericks, Greenwich Taxi, and Greenwich Firefighters. His major sports accomplishments were when he pitched and recorded the save, in the same game, to give Greenwich Taxi a championship; played defense, with three of his brothers, to give Greenwich Firefighters a championship; and his twisted wrister in pond hockey. He collected and read comics, graphic novels and trading cards. His favorite X-Men was Wolverine and loved TMNT: Raphael. He left no conspiracy theory unexplored and developed supernatural video gaming skills. His favorite games were Zelda, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy. The force was always strong with Kevin and he loved watching, researching and blogging Star Wars. Kevin enjoyed his sports and passionately followed the NJ Devils, Jets and loved the NY Mets. Some of his favorite sports figures to follow/pester include: Francesa/Mongo, Piazza, DWright, Pennington, Testaverde, Owen Hart, Harvey, Bobby V., Lance, Herm, and The Sanchize. He considered 'The Sanchez Buttfumble' as the most intriguing sports moment in modern sports. He loved to listen and collect music. Some of his favorites were Bowie, The Strokes, The Vines, Oasis (preferred Liam), Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Death Cab, Bright Eyes, The Libertines, Doherty, The Kills, and Dylan.

He created The Modern Gent Press in 2009 and it is today regarded as, "the best book publisher of all time with the greatest writers of their generation." He helped launch the podcast, Certified Insanity, with his friends. His literary influences were Proust, Poe, Lennon and Hemmingway, but he considered F. Scott Fitzgerald the best author and The Great Gatsby, the best novel of all time. His famous artistic achievements include, Little David, Blue Snow, Marie Antoinette Let Them Have Beach, Shallow Space Afternoon and The Go-Go Girl. His unfinished work was titled, After The Asp Bites. He loved pizza and wants to be remembered as a writer.
