MEET MR. PUZZLES
Kevin Ikim Dunn, the Founder and CEO of Puzzles For Us, is a former Database Programmer and after-school youth counselor who launched the Puzzles For Us series after recognizing the dire need for culturally relevant educational material and resources that reflected the lives of people of color in a positive way.

A talented researcher, writer and organizer with an engaging communication style, Kevin Ikim Dunn -- known affectionately as "Mr. Puzzles" -- channels his life long passion of the Arts and for African American history into the driving force that is responsible for the growing popularity and success of his Puzzles For Us cultural "edutainment" series.

He has been featured on a number of radio and cable television shows, including the Steve Harvey Show on WBLS, and articles on him and his Puzzles For Us series have appeared in the New York Daily News, Bronx Magazine, Harlem News, Our Time Press, and the New York Amsterdam News.

In 2013, Kevin was commissioned by the Schomburg Center For Research in Black Culture to create a series of custom crossword and word search puzzles

Kevin has also created custom puzzles for the Apollo Theater, The National Council of Negro Women, Harlem Opera Theater, and the American Civil Liberties Union’s Racial Justice Department. His latest projects are a children's coloring book and a puzzle book on financial literacy.
