Kevin, his wife and their three children live in Fort Bend County. He is proud of living in one of the fastest growing communities in the country. Fort Bend is his "beat". He is always looking for stories related to its growth, its history and its enormous potential -- stories that matter to those living here -- his neighbors.
Kevin also covers NASA and the space "beat" for Eyewitness News ... fitting he says because he has always been intrigued by space and the human exploration of it. He saw, first hand, the launch of Space Shuttle Discovery and NASA's "Return to Flight" in 2005. Kevin says it was one of the highlights of his career. He has reported on nearly every shuttle mission since.
