Hello, Dayton! I’ve made a short trip from the north to join Storm Center 7 for my second job as an on air meteorologist. I started my career at WLIO in Lima, OH where I climbed to the position of Chief Meteorologist. You'll now find me on Channel 7 as the Weekend Meteorologist. I was born in Lima, but grew up in Columbus Grove, OH. I graduated from Columbus Grove High School in 2010, then shortly after moved to Columbus, OH to attend the Ohio State University. At OSU I earned my bachelor's degree in Atmospheric Science. After my sophomore year in college I joined the Ohio Army National Guard and fulfilled a three year contract. Some of my favorite hobbies include fantasy baseball, lifting weights, and collecting coins. I'm a huge fan of playing and watching all kinds of sports, but football and baseball are probably at the top of my list. By far, my absolute greatest passion is weather. From a young age I have had a huge interest in the weather and climate. With a proper education and understanding of how weather works, my passion has grown beyond a hobby into a career. I’m excited to join and contribute to an excellent team of meteorologists as we work to keep all of you safe.
