He started with BAM in early August 2016. He studied at Ball State University where he majored in professional meteorology and a minored in emergency management homeland security. Since he was about 5 years old, he has had an extreme fascination for all things weather. There was never a time where growing up he didn’t have the Weather Channel on or that he wasn’t begging his dad to go outside and watch the storms roll in. He couldn’t image not following that passion as a profession, so here he is! In his spare time he enjoys sailing with his wife and her parents, playing tennis, storm chasing, exercising, reading, grilling out, travelling to new places and visiting with his family up in northern Indiana.
