I'm a stormchaser, educator, and inventor pushing extreme weather science forward
I love all things atmospheric science. I chase blizzards, hurricanes, flash floods, and more, but I'm best known for my work with tornadoes. The secrets of tornadoes have been a source of endless fascination for me for as long as I can remember. I chased my first one when I was a freshman at the University of Oklahoma, only a year later recording the historic Moore EF5 tornado. I've since sought them at every opportunity.
Scientific models can only tell us so much. First-hand observations are necessary to either validate or provide feedback for them. My recent drone footage of the Andover tornado is a great example of this.
I developed the Dominator to allow my team and I to get close enough to conduct our own research. We've deployed probes into tornadoes using drones, small aircraft, and even rockets - gathering measurements never-before-recorded on earth (yes, just like in 'Twister'). For more, see our DomLabs page.

I use every social post to teach and inform about severe weather, but my first step into formal education was serving as a Lab T.A. for METR1004 in 2003. Since then, I've taught classes for Discovery Education, Varsity Tutors, and more. I've done over 400 speaking events, and have spread my message of sever weather awareness and research as both a morning and late-night talk show guest.
My mother, who's also an educator, taught me that if I followed my dreams, I'd never work a day in my life. She may have regretted those words once she saw that my passion was getting up close and personal with the most powerful forces on the planet, but she still supports my goals to this day. I try to pass that lesson of focus and passion on to others every chance I get, so whatever your dreams are...
Never stop chasing.
