A fifteen-year veteran of the travel profession, Kevin is founder and president of the World Religious Travel Association (WRTA)—the leading global community for the $18 billion and 300 million traveler faith tourism industry. The organization also hosts Faith Tourism Network, the world’s first online social network for faith-based travel.

Kevin is also founder and chairman of the World Religious Travel Expo, an international trade show and educational conference for churches, organizations, group planners, travel providers, tourist boards, travel agencies, and individuals involved in faith tourism. In addition, Kevin is president of the Religious Marketing Consulting Group, a team of independent professionals who assist companies with entering or expanding their presence in faith-based travel and hospitality.

In the mid-1990s, Kevin introduced the first faith-based travel guidebook series, through Liguori Publications, and is today an award-winning author of four books, including his most recent: The Christian Travel Planner. In 2000, Kevin personally presented his travel guidebooks to Pope John Paul II at the Vatican. In 2004, he launched the high-profile religious travel division at Globus, one of the world’s largest tour operators. In his fifteen-year career, Kevin has traveled to thirty countries and visited more than three hundred major places of pilgrimage, including monasteries and convents, while also writing for national publications and serving as an international guest speaker.

As one of the world’s most sought after faith tourism authorities, Kevin has been interviewed by “The Early Show” (CBS), TIME Magazine, USA TODAY, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, National Geographic, The Los Angeles Times, and dozens of other media outlets around the globe.
