A professional educator for over twenty years, 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, he loves 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 that kayaking is supposed to be fun, and having fun helps encourage students to recognize and strengthen the interplay between body and mind. Kevin is active in New England 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. Kevin is also a P&H Team Paddler. He operates Rock, Paddle, Surf Kayak Coaching, a professional sea kayak coaching concern based in his hometown.
