News Philosophy

“Forecasting the weather is just the beginning, explaining it to the viewers in a clear, concise and entertaining manner is what a meteorologist’s job is all about.”

Hobbies, Interests & Community Involvement

“I love to golf and enjoy heading to the beaches around Southwest Florida. Meeting people in the community and reaching out to help local band programs is something else I am very much interested in. While in Arkansas I was a volunteer brass technician with Bentonville High School and hope to find a program of that caliber to help in Southwest Florida.”
