Kevin is a transplant to Tahoe but no stranger to the mountains. He grew up in Colorado, went to Colorado State University to study Recreation and Tourism, has climbed 32 of the state’s 54 total 14,000-foot peaks and is on his way to reaching his goal of summiting them all. Before coming aboard at AdventureSmith Explorations, Kevin worked in the travel and outdoor industries for rafting companies, ski resorts, a prominent bicycle tour operator and the U.S. Forest Service as a Wilderness Ranger in the Boundary Waters Wilderness of northern Minnesota.
His personal travels have taken him through most of the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe and some of the Caribbean. His favorite journeys were biking through Mallorca, Spain and the Tuscany region of Italy, as well as attending many of the 2006 World Cup soccer matches in Germany. Kevin’s diverse background and mountain smarts land him solidly at home in our Truckee office. While his on-water experience is mostly aboard canoes, rafts and kayaks on Lake Superior, the Colorado River and Lake Tahoe, he looks forward to expanding his horizons aboard small ships worldwide with AdventureSmith.
