As a lifelong sailor I was exposed to the raw power and beauty of weather at a very young age. My original motivation to pursue a collegiate study of meteorology was for the purpose of offshore forecasting. I realized this dream in the form of TSweather LLC., where I continue to provide highly detailed forecasts for offshore racers.  The word got out and I have also provided forecast support for numerous organizations including the University of South Carolina and USA Rugby. 

  I grew up fleet and team racing out of Bristol, RI and continue to spend as much time on the water as I can.  From collegiate level sailing coach, to Olympic boatbuilder, I have spent a lifetime on and around the water.  It is also safe to say that the majority of those years have been dedicated to better understanding the weather. 

  In addition to having a very personal understanding of what sailors expect out of a forecast, I have spent nearly a decade in the broadcast sector breaking complex science down into a story that makes sense.  

  Offshore and onshore atmospheric prediction each hold their own high stakes nature and continue to present new and exciting challenges every day. 

Studying weather and talking about it have always fit naturally together as the more I learn, the more I want to share with others.  In addition to my regular communication with top level sailors, I am also a meteorologist for WIVB-TV in Buffalo, NY. Previous career experience includes my time as an On Camera Meteorologist for The Weather Channel and the networks of NBC including MSNBC, CNBC, and as well as The Golf Channel, and ESPN.
