Kevin’s love for international travel began when he traveled across Europe as a UNC Phillip’s Scholar. Since then, Kevin has traveled to more than 25 countries and is excited to explore the unique ports on the Spring 2013 voyage. This is Kevin’s second tenure with Semester at Sea, having sailed on the Summer 2010 Mediterranean voyage as a Living Learning Coordinator.
In his free time, Kevin is an avid runner. He is also a Zumba instructor and works at the Carolina Outdoor Education Center during the summers. He can’t wait to experience Semester at Sea again as his first voyage proved life-changing! He challenges all voyagers to make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity!
