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 a proud father of a 16-year-old daughter who attends Riverside Christian. When I'm not working, I'm skiing. Been on skis for the past 35 years.
