Michigan is his home and he is a local boy through and through. He was born and raised in Livonia, he attended Stevenson High School, Riley Middle School, and Coolidge Elementary.

In 2012, he was awarded the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) seal from the American Meteorological Society.
According to the AMS, the seal represents that, “the holder meets specific educational and experience criteria and has passed rigorous testing in their knowledge and communication of meteorology and related sciences needed to be an effective broadcast meteorologist.”

After interning at Fox 2 News his career started at KDRV in Medford, OR as their morning meteorologist. Two years later he jumped to New Orleans, where he worked at WWL-TV. Studying Tropical Meteorology in school helped prepare him for the extensive severe weather coverage we had during hurricane season.
Additionally, in 2012, Hurricane Isaac made landfall less than 100 miles south of New Orleans and we were on air 24 hours a day for 5 straight days. It was definitely an event that showed him the true power of Mother Nature. There is no place he would rather be than back home in Metro Detroit at Fox 2 News.
