Pearls from Kevin J. Cottam
I met Kevin Cottam a number of years ago while having lunch in Portland with a mutual friend. I'm not surprised that his latest accomplishment is authoring a book.
He's that kind of guy.
Kevin grew up in a logging camp on Vancouver Island. The BC native's illustrious career has included being a champion figure skater, skating choreographer and trainer to national, world and Olympic champions.
He has coached such elite athletes as Kurt Browning and Kristi Yamaguchi, produced and directed award-winning dance films and directed large-scale productions such as the 1988 Calgary Olympic Games Closing Ceremonies. He's currently in Europe working on a large touring skating show.
Kevin is also an in-demand inspirational and motivational coach and speaker. His book, Mother's Pearls: 27 Aha Moments of Realization, is a collection of reflections and recollection on his own colorful life.
Kevin has lived in 13 cities, 7 countries and 3 continents. He currently splits his time between Vancouver and Barcelona.
He's truly a Renaissance Man.
