• Follow me on:

Originally from the Pittsburgh area, I fell in love with weather while bonding with my mom every summer on our front porch as we watched thunderstorms roll through the neighborhood.

Ever since I was a little kid, my dream was to attend the Pennsylvania State University. That dream became even more clear after finding out Penn State offered one of the best Meteorology programs in the country. It’s not much of a stretch to say I bleed blue and white.

After fulfilling one of my life goals of getting my degree, I was offered my first television job in Youngstown, Ohio. You may not have heard of Youngstown, but it is a great area with residents who have a huge passion for their city. It will always have a spot in my heart.

After spending 5 years in northeast Ohio, I moved on to central Texas where I took a job in the state capitol of Austin. I loved Texas, but my dream city has always been Denver.

I have plenty of friends that moved to Denver after college. A few years ago I made a visit to the Mile High City, and knew right away Denver was the one place I wanted to work more than any other.

I couldn’t say no to the opportunity to join the Fox31 and Channel 2 teams when it came along.

I love the beauty of the mountains, the winter sports scene, and of course the challenge of forecasting the constantly changing weather in Colorado.

  • Pineapple Express and plentiful snow forecast to settle down
