Kevin Dragseth is a producer at Twin Cities PBS–TPT and has been telling stories through media for more than 20 years. He was born and raised in St. Paul and graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College with a degree in history and philosophy.
Kevin served as senior producer at Seraphim Communications for many years, specializing in telling the stories of nonprofit human services agencies. In 2011, he became the staff producer at ECHO Minnesota, providing vital health, safety, and community engagement programming for immigrants and refugees in as many as 16 different languages. In 2015, ECHO Minnesota merged with Twin Cities PBS, wherein Kevin came on as a producer, telling community stories with nonprofit partners.
He continues to work frequently across cultures and languages to serve cultural communities, and also produces documentaries, animations, and short films. He was fortunate to have captured much of last year’s The Forum on Workplace Inclusion Conference on camera and produced four short films demonstrating its impact.
