My primary job is working as a meteorologist for the National Weather Service right here in Raleigh! When I am not forecasting for the masses here in central North Carolina, I am complementing science with creativity. I am a big believer in staying balanced in life. Writing and photography allow me to do that and express my passion for learning new things both around the corner and around the world. My story began in the Hudson Valley Region of New York where I grew up before heading to Miami, FL for my undergraduate studies at the University of Miami. It was here I first started taking photography classes and exploring what a camera can (and can’t) do. I also wrote for the campus newspaper, covering sports. After Miami, my graduate work took me to one of the most beautiful places in the world, Hawaii. During my time at the University of Hawaii, I took the time to explore the other half of the planet with trips to places like Tokyo and the islands of Micronesia, expanding my horizons and fueling my thirst for more. After college, my first job in the National Weather Service brought me to Raleigh in 2009 and I have remained here ever since with my wife and 3 year old son. In the less than a decade I have been here, the city has grown exponentially as people have come from near and far to make a diverse, eclectic and vibrant city that is ever changing and expanding. Raleigh is my home and I can’t wait to show you around.
When I am not at my primary job as a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Raleigh, I am balancing science with creativity and sharing my passion for this city and my love of travel, food and photography.
