This Michigan native has called California home for almost a decade. In that time, Kelvin has learned one very important lesson -- it is absolutely imperative to keep snacks with you at all times during your commute. You never know how long you’ll be stuck on those freeways!

Before joining Spectrum News 1, Kelvin hosted “Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge” on NBC, where wounded soldiers fought to overcome their struggles and inspire others by showing them that anything is possible. His work illustrates his passion for telling stories in the hopes of uplifting others.
