I have been quite the weather nerd for as long as I can remember, and I’m so excited this path has led me to the Heartland to pursue my dream of being a meteorologist!

I was born and raised in suburban Cincinnati, Ohio. After high school, I joined the United States Marine Corps. I was stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina and deployed overseas during 2011 and early 2012. It was an amazing adventure getting to see the world, as I visited countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. I was honorably discharged in 2013 and decided college was the next best thing for me.

I attended Ohio University beginning and 2013 and graduated in 2017 with a bachelor of science degree in Meteorology/Geography. I completed an internship at WLWT-TV in Cincinnati, where I developed a passion for being a broadcast meteorologist. I did my first live TV broadcast at Ohio University’s WOUB-TV. I knew from then on exactly what I wanted to do with my career!

My fiancée, Meghan, and I now live in Iowa and are excited to call the Heartland home! If you ever have any questions or just want to talk weather, please email me at or connect with me on Facebook and Twitter!
