Advanced Skywarn Storm Spotter, FAA licensed private pilot. I’ve been infatuated with weather ever since Hurricane Gloria made landfall on Long Island when I was 6 years old. I remember seeing debris blowing all around outside and hearing the loud bangs and crashes of trees and limbs and parts of manmade structures blowing around…Then nothing. We were inside the eye. My father took me outside and I couldn’t believe how gorgeous the sky was, almost immediately after hearing total carnage. Then, we had to get back inside for round 2. Since that day, I’ve have my eyes glued to the skies, even becoming an FAA licensed pilot, flying a plane before I was even old enough to drive a car. My obsession has led me to realize my dream of becoming a full time storm chaser. I’ve turned my car into a full on storm chase vehicle with all the bells and whistles. Bring it on Mother Nature!
