Kevin grew up in St. Louis and moved to Colorado in 2015 after working in Washington D.C. as an Industrial/Organizational psychologist for several years. Following a few years of day hiking and car camping he joined the CMC in 2017. In that time he has taken Wilderness Trekking school, Backcountry Ski school, Wilderness First Aid, Backpacking, Alpine Climbing School, and Wilderness Survival. Kevin likes to do challenging day hikes and backpacking in the summer and backcountry skiing in the winter. In addition, Kevin has been a trip leader since 2018 and leads all types of non-technical trips for those CMC members who can put up with his dry jokes. When he is not doing outdoor recreational activities, Kevin enjoys ultimate frisbee, mountain sport strength and conditioning, stand-up comedy shows, and trying to wear out his Chinook sled dog.
