Kevin grew up in a small town in Long Island, NY. Here, as a child and adolescent, he played many sports (e.g. soccer, roller hockey, and track & field) and enjoyed regular camping outings with his family and friends. What he loved most about these experiences was the fact that they provided him with a sense of community & belonging, challenged him to push past his physical & mental limitations, and allowed him to connect with other people while enjoying the outdoors and living a life full of presence, passion, and intention.
Now in an effort to incorporate these qualities into his life as an adult, Kevin has pursued and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Anthropology at Stony Brook University, attended multiple mindfulness retreats at Buddhist monasteries in Thich Nhat Hanh’s Buddhist tradition, and, most recently, sought and earned a position at Elements Wilderness Program.
At Elements, Kevin is constantly learning new ways to improve the life of his clients while doing his best to provide opportunities for learning and growth on a daily basis; of particular interest to Kevin is his passion for practicing and teaching mindfulness techniques.
On his off-shift, Kevin is likely throwing clay at a ceramic studio, trail-running, hiking, climbing, reading, and/or playing any pick-up sport he can.
