Consumer Investigations Reporter

If you stumbled across this page it means you are about to be bored to death. So I’ll make this quick. I’m KIRO 7 TV's Consumer Advocate. I'm from Tacoma and went to college at Montana State University. My degrees were in staying warm and Film and Television Production. Yes, don’t laugh, I got a B.S. in it. I started my TV career in 1989 at KSTW-TV as a teleprompter operator and receptionist. Imagine walking into a TV station and seeing my face? Scary. I got promoted to a Sports Reporter then to News Reporter ending as a Special Projects Reporter and Producer. A few years later, I left my home town for WMAR-TV in Baltimore, Maryland. I spent seven as an Investigative Reporter in Charm City. In 2001 I went to work for WLWT-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio, in the same capacity. And in 2005 I got opportunity to return to the Northwest. I've been married for 25 years to my wonderful wife Kim. Just a side note, if you really want something done, call her, not me. And I have a daughter named Cydney. She is pretty and smart like her mother. My mom, brother and sister all live in the South Sound. I’m a blessed man. I hope to make you and my family proud.
