As a kid, nothing was more exciting to me than weather.
My fascination for weather kicked off at an early age and I remember watching every local news channel for the latest report. My interest quickly grew into my passion as I knew that one day I would be a meteorologist.
As a kid, nothing was more exciting to me than weather. I enjoyed watching it storm, tracking severe or winter weather through local news, and even reciting the forecast to whomever needed it. My desire to study and understand weather only grew after experiencing the snowstorm of 1998 in Central Kentucky.
After graduating from Morehead State University and becoming an Eagle Alum, I knew that my schooling was unfinished. I attended Western Kentucky University and completed my meteorology degree. I was fortunate enough during my schooling at Western to pick up a morning weather position at a local station in town. From that point, I took a trip to Eastern Kentucky for my next job at our sister station WYMT. After two years, I was able to finally take a trip back home and work for WKYT-TV.
I’m excited to join the First Alert Weather Team and look forward to serving the community across Central & Eastern Kentucky.
Outside of weather, I enjoy other activities such as lifting, running, hanging out with my wife and daughters, and visiting various attractions across the state. If you see me out and about, feel free to come up and talk!
