Well, my life is pretty simple and interesting right now. Ever since I can remember, I have loved
the weather and have had a passion for it. When not dealing with the weather, I find myself hunting or fishing.
I'm currently a student at Oklahoma Panhandle State University, studying Natural Science. I plan on
graduating in December 2006, and then I have to deal with the thought of Graduate school. I plan on attending
Texas Tech for my Grad School. If a meteorology job opens up in Amarillo, either a TV, or at
the National Weather Service, before grad school, I will take the job. I have always loved the Texas Panhandle and
its weather. I would love to stay around home.
I began to storm chase in 2002, and after that first chase, I knew I was hooked for ever. The 2002 chase season
was not the most productive, but it was all a learning experience. On May 15, 2003, I found myself with a couple of buddies
in between Stratford, TX and Guymon, OK. This was the day that the Panhandles set a record number of tornadoes in
a single day, 26. The next couple years after that, I have learned something new every chase. My knowledge
has grown when forecasting Severe Storms.
My most exciting part of my life would have to be my Internship at KAMR-KCIT-TV in Amarillo, TX under Chief Meteorologist
Bill Turner in the spring of 2005. I learned a great deal about the weather from Bill and I still use the same forecasting
methods to this day. I learned about all the different forecasting models and how to read them. I even got to run the
radar while Bill was on the air. It was Awsome.......
