Kevin retired from the State of Nevada in 2009, after 32+ years of service. Born and raised in Connecticut, Kevin completed his undergraduate study at Glassboro State College (NJ) in 1976 and went on to receive his masters and doctoral degrees from the University of Nevada in 1983. Being a Vayable Guide has enabled Kevin to not only enjoy something he is passionate about, but also to make retirement as a time when he can share his knowledge and love of the Sierra Nevada and Great Basin desert with visitors to the Reno Tahoe area. Kevin lives in Carson City, Nevada, and enjoys camping, music, hiking, biking and exploring the mighty Sierra Nevada and the Great Basin. He especially loves to fish the Sierra during the summers, snowshoe in the winter, and picnic at remote hot springs in between. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
