A photo of the author, Kevin, and his dog Reef posing in front of Wy'East.

The author and his assistant.

I’m Kevin (and that’s Reef). I’m a person in Portland, Oregon who really likes to backpack in the wilderness.

I studied photography in college and have continued to have a strong interest in the field over the course of my adult life. In my day job I am a digital asset manager and photo editor, so I spend a lot of time working with and thinking about pictures. Otherwise, I’m also an avid cyclist, runner, gardener, cook, bread baker, and crossword puzzler.

Fun & Convenience is a spot for me to post photographs of my trips to the mountains and spill out some ideas that are bouncing around in my brain. Those ideas might be directly related to trips or the outdoors or they might not. It’s my site.

This site is built with Hugo, an open-source static site generator. It’s super fast, flexible and secure. Thanks to Track3 for creating the Hermit theme, which provides the basis for the look of the site.
