Author of Twister Tales and Weather Wits and Science Snickers

Welcome to my little corner of the Web.

I am a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) and the Chief Meteorologist at KXII-TV in Sherman, TX. I have worked in several large TV markets including Austin and San Antonio before settling in the Red River Valley in 2006.

I am a Texas A&M grad but have lived in many places including Florida, Arkansas and Michigan, so I've seen it all when it comes to weather.



Type your paragraph here.

Why a Weatherman?

I would have probably been voted least likely to be on TV in my high school class if they had taken a poll, so I'm not "On TV" because I'm a camera hog. The TV work can be interesting and I love drawing maps and forecasting, but I'd just as soon wear jeans and an untucked shirt over a suit. Well at least my wife makes sure everything matches and that's a plus!

Winding up on TV was an accident for me, but it's been an interesting path. I'm grateful for the opportunities it offers to share my wonder of science in general and of the sky in particular with others... That's why I wrote the books.
