Kirk Hinz grew up in Plymouth, IN, which is about 20 minutes south of South Bend, IN (go Irish!), he currently lives in Bargersville, Indiana, which has been his home for the past year with his wife Amelia and 1 year old daughter Eleanor. He started with BAM in early August 2016. He studied at Ball State University where he majored in professional meteorology and a minor in emergency management homeland security. Since he was about 5 years old, he has had an extreme fascination for all things weather. There was never a time where growing up he didn’t have the Weather on TV on or that he wasn’t begging his dad to go outside and watch the storms roll in. He couldn’t image not following that passion as a profession, so here he is! In his spare time he enjoys doing new things and creating memories with his wife and daughter, traveling, reading, listening to music, watching and playing sports and doing anything outdoors.
