KEVIN TANAKA comes from a family of firefighters and wanted nothing more as a child than to become one himself. Cancer struck, and an amputation of his leg was required. Since then, he has focused on his other love, literature, eventually earning a degree in that field.
But he still has a fondness for fire stations, which lead him to apply to the GHOSTBUSTERS on a whim. He joined JANINE MELNITZ in the office, his attention to detail taking away a good chunk of her workload.
When not reading, writing, or tending to GB paperwork, Kevin enjoys basketball. He plays in a weekend league and is an avid fan of the Celtics. (His family, pure New Yorkers all, have no idea how that happened, but at least it's not the Red Sox.)
