    Southwest Drive was closed during the morning rush Friday after crews battled a house fire.

I'm a Christian, a husband to a beautiful wife, and the father of 4 great kids, 2 boys and 2 girls. I'm a big fan of football, basketball, and NASCAR. When I'm not at work, you can often catch me at one of our kids' activities or out riding my bike.

I was born and raised in Nashville, TN and went to college at Western Kentucky University, graduating with a B.S. in Geography/Meteorology. While at WKU, I also carried a minor in Broadcast News. 

I started at KAIT in 2001. As you may recall, I left for 3 years to work at our sister-station, WSFA, in Montgomery, AL. I returned to raise my family in Region 8 in 2005.

Outside of the television business, I have worked as a Weather Observer for the Federal Aviation Administration and was a Meteorology Lab Instructor at WKU. I also worked for my Dad's plumbing company for a few years. I probably learned more about life at that job than anywhere else. Plus, working with Dad was an adventure!

I'm a full member of the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association . I also hold the NWA Seal of Approval.
