A professional educator with over twenty years of experience in secondary and higher education, Kevin is based at his home of Beverly, Massachusetts, but loves to paddle wherever there is salt water.

After over a decade of sea kayaking, Kevin loves the fact that he still learns something new every time he jumps on the water, both from his students and other coaches. In his coaching and in the classroom, Kevin emphasizes the interplay between body and mind, encouraging students to recognise and strengthen the connections between the two.

Kevin is active in area non-profit paddling clubs, the American Canoe Association and Paddlesports North America. His qualifications include British Canoeing 5 Star Leader in Sea Kayaking, UKCC Level 2 Coach, American Canoe Association Level 5 Advanced Open Water Instructor, and a registered Maine Guide. He operates Rock, Paddle, Surf Kayak Coaching, a professional sea kayak coaching concern based in his hometown.
