Weatherman from the Beginning…

Ever since I was a young boy, the weather always fascinated me and I knew I wanted to become a meteorologist when I grew up.

It made life easy for me in college when I didn’t have to worry about changing my major or wondering what classes I needed to take.  I lived most of my life in the greater Chicagoland area and enjoy all four seasons of the year with spring being my favorite.

Accurate Weather Forecasting

A majority of my family and friends still live in the Midwest and it’s great to have them turn to me when they have any questions regarding the weather.  There are plenty of people who are reporting about the weather, but I pride myself on accurate forecasts and how the weather could impact your daily activities. I take a lot of pride in that I was awarded the highly distinguished Certified Broadcast Meteorologist seal of approval from the American Meteorological Society in just over two years of being in the industry.

Eye on the Sky

I keep a very close eye on the weather across the Midwest and pass along any important information.  Thanks for visiting my website and don’t forget to check out some of my videos in addition to following me on Twitter and Facebook!
