Q&A


Where are you from?
West Palm Beach, Florida
Where did you go to college?
University of Florida and Florida State University #GoGators
What's your favorite season?
That's like asking someone who their favorite child is!
How long have you been with The Weather Channel?
Since 2003.
What's your favorite weather memory?
The most memorable weather event for me is Hurricane Katrina, hands down. The pictures don't do the destruction justice. It was so hard to believe that Mother Nature caused what we were seeing, that it felt like we were on a movie set!
What is your most memorable/funniest on-camera moment?
There was a major snowstorm in Massachusetts and Jim Cantore and I ended up having a pretty epic wrestling match in the snow live on air.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I'm not as wild as people think. Also, I love game shows!
What sparked your passion for weather?
I've always loved math and science, but Hurricane Andrew was a big influence. I was also curious about those daily afternoon thunderstorms we get in Florida and how they worked.
If you could only have one piece of weather data what would you choose and why?
Dew point temperature. They help determine how it will feel, if it will rain, if severe weather could pop and you could make some assumptions like wind direction from them too.
What do you want to say to our fans?
Thanks for watching, inspiring and for your passion and interest in weather. I feed off of your curiosity and energy!
