As the son of Air Force veteran, Kirk grew up all around the country but has always considered the Black Hills home.
The Rapid City Stevens High School graduate got his start in TV at KOTA in 1997 in the creative department as a commercial photographer.
He brings a wide variety of experience to KOTA Territory News, spending nearly 5 years in the control room and making commercials at KTWO in Casper, WY, before moving into commercial video production full time where he has worked in several different markets including Bakersfield, CA, Oklahoma City, OK and Wichita Falls, TX.
He is currently on his second tour of duty with the station, having returned to Rapid City and KOTA as a photojournalist in 2011.
Kirk is a loyal Jacksonville Jaguars & Oklahoma City Thunder fan. When he doesn’t have a camera in his hand, Kirk enjoys mixed martial arts, working on computers, watching sports, and spending time with his daughter Genevieve.
