Forecasting the weather in North Dakota and the Red River Valley for over 20 years, I have seen it all. This place brings rain and shine, heat and cold, tornadoes to blizzards and a season for everyone. I am blessed to do a job I love with a team I am proud and humbled to work with. My career started in research meteorology, studying new uses for remote sensing instruments. I have been a broadcast meteorologist for nearly 25 years now. For fun, I spent almost 20 years passing along my love of science and meteorology as an adjunct professor of meteorology. I hope to do this job that I truly love for many years. When I do not have my head in the clouds, I enjoy spending time with my four kids and puppy Pedro, classic cars, playing guitar and working on home improvement projects."
