I grew up in the small town of Greensburg, Indiana where I gained a passion for the weather as a young kid. I was always glued to the window while storms were moving through.

I attended North Decatur high school and was very active in sports and other extracurricular activities.

I later attended Valparaiso University where I majored in Meteorology and minored in Digital Media. I also was the manager for the Valparaiso University baseball team.

I graduated in May of 2018 and accepted a job in Lawton, Oklahoma at KSWO.

In my two years at KSWO I got the opportunity to do a lot of storm chasing and live tornado coverage. I love severe weather, so it was great experience. While in Lawton I even got the chance to ride a bull in the Duncan rodeo!

In my spare time you can always find me out fishing, hunting, riding four-wheelers, checking out the local breweries and restaurants, or spending time with friends and family.
