I was born in Indian Head, MD, but I have lived in southern California, Wilmington, NC and New Bern, NC.
I started forecasting as an intern at WWAY TV3 in Wilmington, NC. I got my first job at WCTI TV12 in New Bern, NC where I did mornings. I moved to Tampa and WTSP in January of 2009 Monday thru Friday on The Morning Show. I've forecasted all types of weather over my career, spanning from snowstorms, severe weather and of course hurricanes.
I have earned the CBM certification from the American Meteorological
Society (AMS) and am a Member at Large for the West Central Florida
chapter of the AMS. I received an AP award for Best Weathercast and won
a national award for Best Video from Weather Central. I am a member of
the National Weather Association and visit many area schools each year.
I love to surf, snowboard, scuba dive, spearfish and just to be in the
water. I am a very busy guy with a beautiful wife, a toddler-aged
daughter and recently arrived twin boys! If I'm not changing diapers
and am not in the water, you might find me on the golf course.
I love the weather, the people and the endless things to do in the Tampa
Bay area. Summertime storms are my favorite as I enjoy watching the
storms build each day and as bad as hurricanes can be, I do enjoy the
forecasting struggles they present. I am a big Lightning and Rays fan
and get to as many Bucs games as possible. Above all I love the water
and the warm climate. I just wish we had a little more consistent surf!
