Kevin Raub is a Brazil-based travel and entertainment journalist who grew up in Atlanta and started his career in entertainment in New York, working for Men’s Journal and Rolling Stone magazines and “freelancing” (i.e. interviewing hot young actresses about their sex lives over a few too many cocktails) for men’s magazines like FHM, Stuff and Maxim.
