I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from the Metropolitan State College of Denver in 1999. I spent some time working at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) as both a Student Assistant and Associate Scientist in NCAR's Mesoscale Microscale Meteorology Division. My first television job was actually at our sister station KMGH in Denver.
I've been a Meteorologist here at KRDO NewsChannel 13 since August of 1999, and I currently anchor our STORMTRACKER 13 weather segments during KRDO NewsChannel 13 at noon Monday through Friday. The American Meteorological Society recognizes me as a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist. I've been here for many significant weather events over the years. Some that I have covered on-air include the Ellicott tornado on Memorial Day in 2001, the extreme drought during the summer of 2002, the near record summer rain and associated flash flooding that occurred during the summer of 2006, the 4.4 magnitude earthquake near Trinidad in January of 2007 and so many blizzards that I'm starting to lose track of when they even occurred! More recently of course the fires and floods were big events. I thank those who over the years have allowed me to be a part of their daily lives and look forward to continuing to provide you with accurate, useful weather forecasts on KRDO NewsChannel 13.
I live in Monument, have 3 children and spend most of my free time just trying to raise my kids, maintain my house and coach. Feel free to e-mail me at anytime you have questions or comments.
