Personal: I am a father and husband, and am passionate about both. I am attempting to balance the family life with my other two passions, weather and photography/videography. I am First and foremost a Father and Husband. These two will always come before all else. I live and work from Muscatine, Iowa.
Weather Passion: I have been passionate and intrigued by the weather for many years. I can pinpoint this passion to a certain date and event: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_1994_tornado_outbreak
I lived in Duncanville,TX at the time, and helped with the clean up after this devastating storm. As I have grown older, I have taught myself how to forecast storms, and their movements. I am by no means a meteorologist, but I know my weather well.
I have been a part of the Iowa Storm Chasing Network since 2014, and chase storms with and for the team. http://www.iowachase.com
Photographic Passion: I can’t pinpoint an exact event that triggered my passion, but I do know that I have been snapping photos since the age of 5. I moved to digital photography in 2004, and have self-taught(with the help of a few local and area photographers) myself to use nearly all forms of digital editing. Photographically, I specialize in Landscape and Live Band photography, but I am starting to delve in to the world of Portraiture.
I am experienced with all types of light situations, and have a ton of lighting equipment to use when needed.
