Kevin has always liked creating stories, with his first written while he was in Kindergarten. It was four sentences. The last sentence was And they did. It s not copyrighted. Creative writing and storytelling, based on the humor in our everyday lives is his passion. The Deputy Dorkface series began as bedtime stories. Kevin would make up these stories to tell his children, their friends, cousins, and anybody who would listen... almost every night. And most nights, by request. They were interactive, with the kids offering the names of their horses, activities and stunts for the story participants. It was Improv by Dad. By the way, the name Deputy Dorkface was just made up to make the kids laugh. It worked! Stinkville has already gone into its third printing and inspired the follow-up: Deputy Dorkface; How Sugaropolis Got Dessert Back about a town where the kids are too full for dinner but always have room for dessert, a common custom in most of our homes. Sugaropolis entered its second printing in 2012. And... Deputy Dorkface; How Mannerland Got Its Manners Back was his latest adventure to hit the shelves in April 2011. He shares the stories plus demonstrates the writing, illustrating and editing process in schools throughout the year. The students come away with a different respect for reading, and a whole new enthusiasm for creative writing. Last year alone, Kevin visited over 120 schools, giving author presentations, speaking on weather, reading and giving commencement speeches at graduations and DARE culminations. He has also volunteered his time to numerous charities and community organizations since coming to Clark County. Kevin has been a television meteorologist since 1983, and moved to Las Vegas in 1994. He was named National Broadcaster of the Year in 2006 by the National Weather Association. In June 2013, Kevin received his fifth Emmy award from the Southwest Region of the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences. In 2006, Kevin was named to the Greenspun Media Group s Most Influential Las Vegans. In 2003, the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce named Kevin, Humanitarian of the Year. An avid tennis enthusiast, Kevin is often found on local courts. And... to add a little excitement, looks forward to that week each Spring traveling to the Plains to chase tornadoes.
