Wilmington, NC

I am currently WECT and Fox Wilmington's Weeknight Meteorologist and am happy to be celebrating thirteen years in Wilmington. My first television job was in Rapid City, SD where I honed my winter weather forecasting skills. I also had the chance to be a Chief Meteorologist at a small station in Abilene, TX, right in the heart of tornado alley. Prior to my arrival at WECT, I picked up valuable tropical weather skills forecasting in the Lafayette, LA market along the U.S. Gulf coast.

I am a native North Carolinian who is happy to be in the Tar Heel state. I was born in Raleigh and I am a graduate of Broughton High School and N. C. State's Meteorology program. The Raleigh Tornado of 1988 and Hurricane Hugo in 1989 fueled my interest in weather when I was young. I was awarded the AMS Television Seal of Approval in 1998.

I have been married for eighteen years to my wonderful wife Elizabeth. We have a son named Winston and a daughter named Anna-Scott. We also have a dachshund mixed dog named Texas (You can probably guess where we got him). I love sports such as: golf, basketball, and tennis. I'm also a big fan of John Grisham books. I am very happy to be in North Carolina to cheer my beloved N. C. State Wolfpack through thick and mostly thin.

For several years I served on the board of the Phoenix Employment Ministry. This group does wonderful work in helping homeless and nearly homeless people in our community find work. Over the years I have had the chance to share my passion for weather with many schools and civic organizations across southeast North Carolina. Feel free to email me at if you would like me to speak to your group!
