Ken Quintanilla - Reporter

Posted: Updated:

Ken is one of the newest additions to the KUAM family having joined in the summer of 2011. Before joining the news team, Ken worked at Glimpses Publications where he wrote for both its business and lifestyle publications along with practicing his photography skills for nearly two years. Simultaneously, Ken continued serving at Tony Roma's restaurant where he not only provided exceptional service and a hot plate of ribs for five years, but honed his communication and networking skills with guests. 

Prior to graduating from the University of Guam in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Mass Media concentration, Ken learned the ropes of the news industry by writing for Triton's Call— the University newspaper and interning at both the Marianas Variety and KUAM. Ken attributes his professional career path to the numerous local reporters and news staff who offered him guidance and opportunities as an aspiring journalist. 

Ken was born and raised on Guam and aspires to travel the world one day. Ultimately, he just wants to hike every trail on Guam, learn to make chalakilis and latiya and become fluent in Chamorro. When he's not chasing an interview or learning more on the legislative process, Ken enjoys reading the comedic essays of David Sedaris, thrift shopping, running and everything pop culture.
