My interest in television sparked at an early age. I was born in Chicago, Illinois, but raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“I have wanted a career in television since the fourth grade. I went from being very afraid of storms to chasing them!” I was motivated with a deep passion for weather, and took advantage of on-camera experience received through a position as my high school’s first weatherman.
My interest in weather didn’t stop in my high school newsroom. After I earned a Bachelors of Science from California University of Pennsylvania in Operational Meteorology, I went on to Mississippi State University where I earned a Masters degree in Broadcast Meteorology.
I joined the WWL-TV Pinpoint Weather Team in January of 2014. I serve as the Morning Meteorologist for WWL-TV Eyewitness News. As a WWL-TV meteorologist, I inform the public of severe and tropical weather activity, visit our local schools and give weather pretensions to area businesses.
En route to WWL, I interned at WPXI-TV in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was not long before I became the morning meteorologist at WSEE-TV in Erie, Pennsylvania. Then I made the transition to South Louisiana and became the morning and noon meteorologist at WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge for 10 years. There, I won Best Weathercast by the Louisiana Associated Press in 2008. Recently, I was awarded Best Weathercast again for my weathercasts at WWL-TV in 2015. Needless to say, I have weathered some of South Louisiana’s worst hurricanes from Katrina to Rita to Gustav.
I have earned the prestigious “Seal of Approval” from the American Meteorological Society. I’m a member of the National Weather Association, American Meteorological Society, and I’m an Eagle Scout.
