A native of the State of Washington, living in the Puget Sound area since 1980, Kevin founded and continues to manage a marine related business with operations in Lynnwood, WA and Frejus, France. He started his motorcycle riding adventures at the age of 10 and has ridden ever since. His current stable consists of five bikes, 3 BMW F800’s, 1 BMW R1200GSA and a Ducati GT1000.
Kevin was first introduced to the BDR and world of adventure riding in 2011 when he attend the IMS show in Long Beach CA. Kevin was in search of new gear to outfit his R1200GS and his sons BMW X-Challenge. After spending an afternoon in the Touratech booth organizing and buying parts for his bike, Paul Guillien eventually handed him a WABDR movie and map. From that point, Kevin has dedicated much of his free time helping with many behind-the-scenes job’s at the BDR organization.
A highlight for Kevin was being cast and crew on the NMBDR movie. During one of the fundraiser events he was asked to head up the development of the East Coast BDR routes. In September 2017, thanks to Kevin’s efforts, the scouting for the Mid Atlantic BDR was completed giving the East Coast it’s first BDR.
In 2017, Kevin joined the organization as a board member. He heads up most of the logistics of moving bikes, people and gear for the various events in the US, as well as manages the development of the remaining East Coast routes, the North East BDR (NEBDR) and the South East BDR (SEBDR).
Kevin shares many passions in his life. First and foremost is spending time with his family. His hobbies include a wide range of activities such as destination motorcycle riding, skiing, snowboarding, sailing, power boating, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, competitive shooting, Jeeping, collecting art, cooking and gardening. Kevin currently resides in Woodinville, WA with Karen and his dog Kenya.
