I'm excited to be back in the beautiful Lowcountry, rejoining the Storm Tracker team as the A.M. meteorologist on Good Morning Charleston!

After leaving WCIV in 2018, I worked at KTUL in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where I covered tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and more throughout northeast Oklahoma.

I started my career in Idaho where I covered a lot of wildfires and snowstorms with the occasional bout of severe weather (usually in late September).

Then I moved to South Carolina in 2016, where I covered daily sea breeze thunderstorms and Hurricanes Irma, Florence, and Michael. Florence in particular was impactful for me, as I reported and saw first hand the devastating flooding a slow moving hurricane can do.

A little bit about my personal life. I studied at Brigham Young University and received a bachelor’s in broadcast journalism. Then I studied at Mississippi State University for a seal in Meteorology. I’m happily married to a lovely gal who (for some reason) said yes to forever on June 15, 2017. She is a talented singer and a middle school teacher (bless all of you!). Going home is always fun and entertaining as the stories from school are endless.

I come from a large family of seven kids that moved a lot. Besides Idaho, South Carolina, and now Oklahoma, I’ve lived in Utah, California, Alaska, Tennessee, and the Czech Republic. Moving around a lot hasn’t always been easy, but it makes you appreciate the good in where you live. Plus, for me personally, it was always fun to discover the localized nuances that make weather unique everywhere you go.

I’m a big watersport guy enjoying skiing, water polo, and pretty much any snow sport. My wife and I are big foodies. We love trying new restaurants and are always looking for new places to visit. If you have a recommendation,

I’m all for making new friends. Message me on social media if you have questions, food recommendations, or just want to know what’s up with the weather.
