Born in Seoul, and adopted at the age of three to a German/Irish family in Philadelphia, Kevin “Taejin” Kreider recalls being bullied for his lanky figure, Asian heritage, and always being the token Asian guy and different at a young age which has been his fuel and motivation for years.
As a model, Kevin Kreider has been featured in publications such as Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness Magazine, and was the first Asian-American to greet guests shirtless at the Abercrombie and Fitch on Fifth Avenue in New York City.
In 2014, the stress and non-stop nature of his career in the entertainment industry took a toll on his body and Kevin was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata, an auto immune disease that attacks the hair follicles. In two weeks, he not only lost a majority of his hair, but also his modeling career. Kevin has learned the craft of acting at a two year Meisner conservatory, skateboarded across America documenting the experience after Alopecia Areata. to now residing in Los Angeles where he finds he can use all his strengths in fitness, wellbeing, modeling, motivational speaking, content creation and entertainment, with the mission to change the perceptions of Asian men world wide, serve and strengthen the Asian Community, hoping to bridge the east and western cultures together, and empowering the next generation.
