Pure valley boy. Grew up in Yakima. Graduated from Eisenhower High School in 1982 and Seattle University in 1997. I've been reading, writing and producing news for KIT since 1992. I married my elementary school sweetheart and am the proud father of an 18-year-old daughter who attends Heritage University and is studying to be a doctor. When I'm not working, I'm skiing. Been on skis for the past 41 years.
