Kevin is a fifth-year senior this year, finishing up classes this semester towards his BS in Mechanical Engineering. Originally from Klamath Falls, Oregon, Kevin comes from a family with strong ties to nature. Kevin’s father has worked in the timber industry for over thirty years, following in the footsteps of his own father, and Kevin’s mother works for the Oregon Department of Forestry as a stewardship forester, helping landowners manage their timber. Kevin grew up in close contact with the natural world.
Kevin has been on and off with SC Outfitters during his entire time at USC, originally joining the organization in Spring 2008 and stepping aside as a guide when his other responsibilities became too irksome. Now, in his last semester before diving headfirst into the real world, he is incredibly excited to get into the wilderness with his fellow classmates and other guides.
One of his favorite quotes:
“Always remember, your focus determines your reality.” – Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn
