I grew up coming to Cincinnati during the summer for Reds games. We would always go to Skyline before the game, hope for 11 strikeouts during the game, and try and cash in on the free LaRosa’s pizza after. So I am looking forward to getting my chili fix weekly (probably daily) at the many different options around town!
I am originally from the small town of Bargersville, Indiana just south of Indianapolis. I went to Purdue University for my undergrad and grad School. I majored in Meteorology, Communications and Agricultural Communications. Looking back, triple majoring was a bit of overkill but it certainly made me appreciate my free time and it helped me land this amazing job!
I was lucky enough to land my first meteorologist job at WLFI in West Lafayette, which is where Purdue is located. Staying in my college town for three years after graduation was awesome. I was familiar with the area and, like Cincinnati, got to forecast for all the seasons. One day it’s sunny and 60 the next we are talking feet of snow.
After a few months at WEWS in Cleveland, I am now able to call Cincinnati home. I’m excited to live in the city and soak up all the culture this amazing place has to offer.
If I’m not at work, odds are you’ll see my wife and I walking around downtown, going to the Findlay Market, and at every Reds game possible.
