Born in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. Kevin got his first taste of world travel as a student of ARCC. Traveling to places like Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Belize. Kevin then went on to the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he spent most of his time as the University mascot “Chip”, even winning the Mascot National Championship in 2009. Continuing to move west, Kevin became a whitewater rafting guide in Moab Utah until he rejoined civilization in Los Angeles, working in the film industry. ARCC returned to Kevin’s life in 2019, as he became a summer trip leader. He traveled with students to parts of Southeast Asia, Central America, and East Africa. Finishing up as a gap instructor on the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Kevin joined the ARCC office as a Summer Director in 2022 and is excited to be able to continue his journey with ARCC supporting students and leaders as they continue to explore the world.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about travel, movies, photography, rafting, environmental conservation, and holding space for others to be heard.
Favorite places to travel?
Ireland! The first European country I ever visited for an extended period of time. Fun Fact! My Great-grandfather, Lee Sheridan, was the ambassador for the US to Ireland in 1968. Ireland is also the source of my heritage, causing an obsession with tracking my lineage. From green hills to beautiful music, Ireland’s sense of community, especially in the small towns, makes it a required stop every time I go to Europe.
What is on your bucket list?
I have a weird desire to be in Antarctica during the six months of darkness. I don’t know why, but the physical and mental challenge is very intriguing.
