Kevin has been hiking since 1991 and have thousands of miles under his boots from the deserts of the Southwest, the volcanic landscapes of Iceland, the arctic tundra of Greenland, to the legendary Appalachian Trail. As one of the few military trained guides in the industry he have had unparalleled survival training and can navigate on land, sea or air. He's not only certified as a Wilderness EMT but also teach both the Wilderness First Responder and Wilderness First Aid courses. He's passionate about hes profession which allows him to offer everyday folks unique adventures that leave them with new friends and a lifetime of stories.
He have always had a strong sense of adventure, a passion for exploration and believed that life should be lived without ever asking yourself “what if?” As a cadet in the University of Arizona’s Army ROTC program he joined the Battalion’s Ranger training program and soon found himself spending most weekends in the desert learning small unit tactics, land navigation, and desert survival under the tutelage of soldiers from the Green Berets, Delta Force, and Rangers. He marveled at the beautiful places we traveled to in order to train to fight and eventually had the epiphany that, “Hey, I can come here without the M-16.” My passion for the outdoors was born in the deserts and mountains of Southern Arizona and only grew from there.
He eventually transferred to the Naval ROTC and was commissioned as an Ensign in the U.S Navy. As a Naval Officer he had the opportunity to fly jets, hunt submarines on a guided missile frigate and serve as a boarding officer charged with leading a 12 man team tasked with taking over ships in the Persian Gulf and inspecting them for contraband during the United Nations Embargo against Iraq. Returning to New York City in January 2001 he began a new life as a law student. January 2003 marked he return to active duty when he deployed overseas with a reserve gunboat/coastal warfare unit as part of Operation Enduring Freedom and in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He returned to law school after his latest tour of duty and completed hes studies. Admitted in NY and NJ, He very quickly realized that a desk job was not for him.
