Evening Meteorologist

I grew up in Southern California and as an avid outdoorsman, I love fishing, hiking, skiing, and many other outdoor sports where it’s pretty important to know the weather. For as long as I can remember, monitoring the weather has been an exciting part of my life. And I love to talk. So it was only natural for me to become a weatherman on TV where I could share my excitement.

I went to California State University at Northridge and polished my broadcast journalism skills at San Diego City College. I became a meteorologist through Mississippi State University and have an American Meteorologial Society (AMS) Seal of Approval.

I started the first four years of my adventure in broadcast meteorology in San Diego as a weather producer and news writer. After that I was at the number one rated station in Yuma, Arizona where I was the main weather anchor for more than two years. Then I went to Reno, Nevada to be the morning meteorologist on the top morning news program where I also co-hosted, did in-studio interviews, and did live shots throughout the community. In Portland, Oregon I was the weekend meteorologist and reported on breaking weather and environmental stories, too.

All along my journey, viewers have told me they pick up on my passion for weather and that they can tell that I love what I’m doing.

For me, being surrounded by Alaska’s breathtaking, world-class landscape doesn’t just mean I get to look at picture postcard scenery every day — it’s like I get to live inside a picture postcard every day. Add to that, being able to forecast the Last Frontier’s dynamic weather at the new KTVA with its state of the art weather technology and newsroom and our seasoned team, and it’s a dream come true. Join us at KTVA where the adventure is just beginning!
