Bio: Kenny was born in Manhattan, New York, and was raised in New Jersey. From a young age, his parents instilled a sense of adventure that involved exploring new places and trying new activities including hiking, biking, fishing, camping and taking road trips. Fueled by his desire to try new things, Kenny joined the Marines and was later deployed in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He suffers with PTSD and lower back pain from this deployment.

Through the expedition, Kenny hopes to break out of the rut he’s in and be pushed to his limits. He’s optimistic that this journey will change the course of his life and lessen the impact of his PTSD.
