Michael Rollins has been on the KGW.com team since May of 2009.

His birth certificate says he was born in Osaka, Japan. He grew up mostly in Oregon, graduating from McNary High School and Oregon State.

Michael was in print journalism for most of his career, at the Quad-City Times in Davenport, Iowa, the Salem Statesman-Journal (followed by a few years of wandering the globe) and then the Oregonian.

He likes to cook, ride motorcycles, golf poorly, stare up at the stars, and grow whatever puts up with him in a garden.
