As a college student in 1985 at SUNY in Brockport, I turned a college internship into a career with television. Now, after 36 years, I have worked at two television stations and have been challenged with some of the most difficult and unique weather in the country. Joining the News10NBC First Alert Weather Team has been a great experience, and I am happy to say this latest adventure keeps me in Rochester.
I am a member of the American Meteorological Society and have been awarded their Seal of Approval for television weathercasting. I have also written weather columns for the Democrat and Chronicle newspaper and have been an adjunct instructor teaching Weather and Climate at Monroe Community College. In 2005, I was fortunate to be awarded the SUNY Brockport Award for Community Service.
My wife, Eileen, and I have two grown sons and live in Fairport. I am also very fortunate to have two grandchildren whom I hope to see as much as possible. In my spare time, I enjoy all sports and I’m a huge New York Yankee baseball fan.
