KUSA - Thanks for clicking on my bio page.
If you don't want to read this drivel, and if you're just here to figure out where to send me hate mail, I'm actually on sabbatical for the next eight months, and my email is broken.
In fact, I don't even have email.
Please mail written complaints to:

Anyways, back to me which is why you find yourself in this cartoonish corner of 9NEWS.com and back to this absurd bio.
Let's begin with a story about a skinny 17-year-old kid who had this really fantastic unibrow.
Here's an actual photo of Unibrow to help your imagination as we go on this short journey together.
One day, Unibrow, who was quite fond of horrible Hammer pants and No Fear shirts, found another passion in journalism after writing several articles for his high school newspaper during the late 1990s.
Unibrow posed as a wheelchair-bound student at another school and slept at a homeless shelter for his reports, which humbled him and made him realize journalism can help people understand parts of life that are often misunderstood.
While a high school senior, Unibrow managed to get a job as a production assistant at KRNV-TV in Reno, Nev.
Eventually, Unibrow saved enough funds and finally bought a razor so he could get rid of the growth that made him look like Bert from Sesame Street.
After shaving, Unibrow suddenly became a macho, handsome manly-man who ended up getting lots and lots of girlfriends and a new Ferrari.
Okay, that's not really that accurate. But the rest of this story is true ...
While getting a journalism degree at New Mexico State, Unibrow managed to get a weekend reporter gig at KTSM-TV in El Paso. It was in in El Paso where Unibrow really nailed down his reporter look that resembled something like Fred Savage stuck in an oversized suit.
After getting his journalism degree, Unibrow moved to Albuquerque to work at KOB-TV for nine years where he earned some recognition for his reporting, like a New Mexico Broadcasters Association award for Best Investigative Reporting, Best Reporter in Albuquerque the Magazine, and a regional Emmy for his investigation into illegal dumping.
In 2011, Unibrow moved to the great city of Denver after convincing 9NEWS managers he could do some good work for the people of Colorado.
Since then, our hero, Unibrow, has done some investigative reports which include exposing toll money going to massages, a utility manager who got new expensive rims for his government ride, welfare dollars used at liquor stores, and companies behind shady letters that led people to believe they were getting free flights.
From two more regional Emmys for his work at 9NEWS and then most recently Best Investigative Report and Best Specialty Reporter from the Colorado Broadcasters Association, Unibrow has been recognized for his work in Denver.
Not bad eh?
So that's the brief story about Unibrow who now finds himself typing away at a computer screen for a 9NEWS.com bio page.
I take my work very seriously, but I try not to take myself too seriously as you can see here.
As an investigative reporter, I deal with some very serious topics and I find that humor helps me get through the intensity of this job.
It's a very interesting job that I love and I can't picture myself doing anything else. I love helping people and exposing problems and holding the powerful accountable.
And to be honest, I do have email. Feel free to reach out to me, even if you have a complaint. The type of reporting I do can often make people mad and angry and I think it's important that I hear from everyone.
Got any story ideas?
Send them too. I live off news tips.
Thanks for making it this far,
Unibrow a.k.a. Jeremy Jojola
