I joined the StormTracker 8 Weather Team in late 2017.  I’m happy to be in the Richmond area, which isn’t far from my home state of Delaware.  The weather here can be exciting and I’m looking forward to giving you the forecast!

I received my bachelor’s degree in Meteorology from California University of Pennsylvania. I then began my career as a Meteorologist at 47 ABC (WMDT) working weekends and filling in when needed. My next step took me to Rock Island, Illinois to be the Morning Meteorologist for CBS 4 (WHBF). I then returned to 47 ABC (WMDT), taking the role of Chief Meteorologist. While in the Midwest I saw my share of severe weather, cold and snowy winters, and even major flooding along the Mississippi River. Some notable weather on Delmarva included major hurricanes, severe weather including a few tornadoes, and a few large snow storms.

When I have some free time I tend to enjoy the outdoors by spending time at the beach or along the river, reading a good book, or training for triathlons.
