As one of the few trained military guides in the industry, he has unparalleled survival training and can navigate land, sea and even air.

He now lives in Trondheim, Norway, where he runs his company International Adventure Guides. Kevin and his other qualified guides lead multi-day trips throughout Norway and the entire Nordic region.

You can read more about Kevin and his personal struggles in his memoir, Duct Tape and Boiling Wire: “I hope this book will help shed some light at the end of the tunnel for those who are currently lost in the darkness and provide some insight. about who is really declaring bankruptcy in search of a second chance.”

Kevin also talks about his favorite hiking spots in Norway, including Jotunheimen National Park:

“There is such a diverse area here. One day we may wake up in the mountains with glaciers around us and some kind of sparse landscape and we descend into a lush valley with these green-blue glacier waters. It’s really an amazing place.”

We’re also talking about the pilgrimage trail to Trondheim, where Kevin first discovered the city he now calls home.
