My interest in meteorology started with a pair of hurricanes in the mid-90s, and it snowballed (no pun intended) from there. I went to both Pensacola State College and to Florida State University, and started my career at WCTV in Tallahassee, Florida. I have served as Chief Meteorologist at WTOK in Meridian, Mississippi, at KOAA in Colorado Springs, and now at WAAY31!

I have had the opportunity to cover everything from tornadoes and hurricanes, to blizzards and ice storms. Including the April 27, 2011 tornado outbreak. Floods and wildfires have also been in the mix. I have been honored by the Associated Press with numerous awards for my weather coverage.

I am excited to be in Huntsville and closer to my hometown of Pensacola, Florida. The weather is dynamic, and I will be tracking dangerous conditions to help keep you and your family safe.
