I’m not a meteorologist, I just love severe weather and storm chasing! Several of my friends think I should pursue meteorology, however I’m only interested in severe weather, and mainly interested in being IN it, not just forecasting it! In fact, learning forecasting is somewhat of a drag to me, I just want to know enough to chase well! Although I’ve been chasing since 2009, I’ve been fairly limited in my opportunities due to finances, work, and school. My first chase was June 1, 2009 on a tornado warned supercell near Frankfort, IN. I finally saw my first tornado on April 19, 2011 near Litchfield, IL. I’ve now seen 27 tornadoes, 10 of which came from one incredible cyclic supercell in Minneola & Dodge City, KS on 5/24/16!
In real life I am a Physician Assistant working in family practice in the suburbs of Dallas, TX.
