I have a beautiful wife, 2 great boys and 2 awesome 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, out riding my bike, or at Church activities.

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 another Raycom News Network 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. 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 and was the 2016 Broadcaster of the Year from the National Weather Association.
