In a Chicago area high school I was voted, “Most Unforgettable.” Who would have thought I’d actually be able to live up to that billing as well as parlay that into a career I love? I had my doubts at times but here I am after stints on reality television and now as a television weather anchor.

From the late 1990’s and into the 2000’s I worked various jobs in sales and experiential marketing but had dreams for a long time of working on TV as a weather guy. I spent a few years acting and participating on numerous television shows while pursuing my degree.  When the reality TV and acting bug wore off, it was time to finish my studies. I attended Mississippi State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in meteorology.

I landed my first news job in Joplin, MO as the weekend meteorologist.  I was thrown into the fire for severe weather coverage. I also worked as a journalist to cover the devastating floodwaters in Southwest Missouri. Before I left, I even put together a fun package about Bigfoot in The Four States.

My next stop was Anchorage, AK.  Here I worked as a morning meteorologist and it was an experience that I will never forget.  After countless moose sightings, whale and bear encounter’s, as well as cold snowy winters, I thought it was time to leave the biggest state and head south to the second largest state in the country. I have kicked off 2021 as an anchor/meteorologist/MMJ here at KAVU for the warm winters in Victoria, Texas. Time to chase hurricanes and predict severe weather while presenting to and interacting with the nicest people I have met to date.
