Drew began as KING 5's South Bureau Chief the day devastating floods hit the South Puget Sound area in December of 2007. That may have been his first day at KING, but he's been around the Northwest for a while. After graduating from Newport High School, he majored in communications at the University of Washington. He began his TV career working (for free) at KNDO in Yakima, Washington. He went on to spend four years working in Las Vegas at KLAS before moving to Portland, Oregon. After spending time at KPTV and KOIN, he joined KING's sister station KGW.

Drew loves spending time with his wife, little girl and dog. His perfect day is breakfast out with the family followed by a sunny day at Husky Stadium, rooting for his favorite Dawgs. He's also a big San Francisco Giants baseball fan. (He was born and raised in S.F.)

Drew covers news that happens between Tacoma and Lewis County and from the coast to Mount Rainier. If you have a story idea, please email him at:
