Kevin is a true humanitarian who puts action before words and draws on his vast experiences in life to help and assist others whenever and where ever he is able to.
He is a very humble man who served with the SAS in the Australian Army and has used the disciplines and experienced he gained to benefit many people he meets. He is not in your face about this but has the quiet confidence that people of this ilk acquire during the course of their training.
The world and The Wheel of Life project are so much richer for all the Kevin Bailey’s who live amongst us.
