Title: Meteorologist

Growing up North Carolina I was impacted by severe thunderstorms, snowstorms and the occasional land-falling hurricane. One of my earliest memories is chainsaws clearing trees brought down by Hurricane Hugo in 1989 in Charlotte, NC. I was fascinated by these experiences as a kid and this interest in weather lead me to a B.S. in meteorology from North Carolina State University.

After college I went west to KRCR in far northern California. Unlike the stereotype, California does occasionally see active and severe weather. One of my most important responsibilities in my time in California was tracking fire-weather conditions throughout fire season. I was on-air for several days straight covering both the Carr Fire and Camp Fire in 2018. Over 7 fire seasons I covered dozens of devastating wildfires but the 2018 fire season will stay with me the rest of my life.

My wife and I are thrilled to be in Huntsville and we look forward to exploring the Tennessee Valley.
