Harvesting Nature's Bounty


About the Author

Kevin grew up in rural Southern Indiana. He has a BS from Purdue University in Biology Education and a MS in Computer Science from the Naval Postgraduate School.   


His wilderness survival education began at 12 years of age by venturing into the woods identifying and collecting wild edible and medicinal plants, camping, hiking, hunting and fishing. After graduating from college, Kevin joined the Navy and later retired as a Lieutenant Commander.  While on active duty he attended eight wilderness survival schools. Today he continues to develop his thirty plus years of wilderness education.  


While stationed in the Washington DC area he conducted nature classes for over twenty years as a volunteer naturalist at the United States Patuxent Research Refuge. He has published multiple articles in several national magazines. After retiring from the Navy Kevin brought his family back to Southern Indiana where he works as a financial advisor in Louisville, KY.   


Kevin also conducted regular nature and wilderness survival classes at Bernheim Arboretum in Kentucky and at several locations in Southern Indiana.  He also continues to give talks and classes to service organizations, school groups, scouts and many others.

What others are saying about Kevin's new book

Spiritual Enlightenment

 Awaken to The Here and Now

This book belongs among the elite volumes (its neighbors THE BOOK by Alan Watts, BE HERE NOW by Ram Dass, and MERE CHRISTIANTY by C.S Lewis) that pragmatically illustrates the value of spiritual practice upon everyday life. It may well outstrip THE POWER OF NOW in its transformative power for troubled souls.
David Bischoff
New York Times Bestselling Author.
"I thought this book was very well written and sheds light on the advaita tradition
of non-dual awareness which defines natural perception as the freedom of enlightenment.
The author has taken 30 years of experience and translated his knowledge to point
directly at liberation."

-Barclay V. Powers

Independent filmmaker and
author of "The Answer."
