Hi, I'm Kevin. I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri. My love of travel started when I joined the United States Navy in 1994. I spent 20 years in the military and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel all over the world (mostly by boat) and experience many different cultures. I lived in Hawaii and Italy and traveled to 17 other countries. 


In 2015, I retired from the Navy and decided to go to law school in Washington DC. During law school, I took a 3-day trip to France and realized how much I missed traveling. I graduated from law school in 2018 and moved to NYC.  In 2019, I decided to leave my job as a lawyer and travel full time as a travel vlogger and blogger.


This blog chronicles my travel adventures. My goal is to wake up somewhere new every 30 days – hence the name "30 And A Wake Up!"
