Born and raised in Hertfordshire, England, Kevin moved to the United States at sixteen-years-old where he obtained citizenship through his service with the U.S. Army. After serving eight tours of duty over eighteen years, including ten years as a 'Green Beret' in the U.S. Special Forces, Kevin retired due to his combat injuries and decided to devote his time to his childhood passion, wildlife conservation.
In 2016, with almost two decades of experience training foreign militaries and indigenous personnel in some of the world's most dangerous and remote places, Kevin began training wildlife rangers on the frontlines of conservation in Africa. Next, he moved to Southeast Asia to support rainforest reforestation, Asian elephant rescue, and wildlife conservation projects. He also used this time to get closer to Asia's illegal wildlife markets due to their role as global hubs for the illicit trade.
Kevin currently resides in the Kruger park region of South Africa, overseeing various Wild Responses projects - where he advises in wildlife ranger capacity building- and immersing himself in the African wilds.
