AMGA Certified Rock Guide, Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician, Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician, Leave No Trace Master Educator, New York State DEC Licensed Guide,

In 1995, Kevin was introduced to rock climbing, in the Adirondack State Park. Kevin’s love for the outdoors began long before he discovered his passion for climbing. Rock climbing added a new dimension to Kevin’s relationship with the natural world. In 2002, Kevin began instructing rock climbing courses for The University of New Hampshire’s Outdoor Education program where he received his B.S. in Outdoor Education. Kevin loves teaching others how to rock climb and designed the curriculum and currently teaches a top rope rock climbing course offered at SUNY Oneonta. Kevin spent three years as the Assistant Director of The Clark Sport Center Adventure Programs in Cooperstown, NY, where he developed as both a teacher and a climber. He spent the summer of 2007 as a Rock Climbing Specialist and Instructor for the North Carolina Outward Bound School. Although he enjoyed spending time in North Carolina, climbing on beautiful granite, he is excited to be back in a place that feels so familiar.

Kevin took is an AMGA Certified Rock Guide and is a graduate of the AMGA Ice Instructor course. He plans to continue his education with the AMGA and is excited to be guiding and instructing rock climbing courses in the Gunks.
