I’m a meteorologist at the NBC station in Hartford, Connecticut and a self-described weather nut. Weather has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. Hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, and everything in between fascinates me. I was born in Greenwich but grew up in Branford and eventually Guilford where I attended middle and high school. I’m a proud Guilford High School graduate and absolutely love my home town and where I’m from. Though I currently reside in West Hartford my heart is with the Connecticut shoreline!
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in meteorology from Penn State and attended graduate school at the State University of New York at Albany for atmospheric science. I started my television career at WNYT-NewsChannel 13 in Albany and joined NBC Connecticut in 2005.
Though my posts tend to trail off during quiet weather periods before a storm you can expect plenty of updates and “behind the scenes” kind of science and forecasts. I like to share my love of meteorology with my readers and even if some discussions are overly technical I hope everyone can learn at least something from them.
I love visiting schools and talking about the importance of math and science and sharing my love for the weather. In fact I’ll talk to anyone about Connecticut weather and Connecticut weather history if they’ll listen!
I currently am the midday and 5 p.m. meteorologist at NBC Connecticut. For many years I reported on news stories across the state and was able to meet a number of fantastic people and tell amazing stories.
Many people ask what my favorite kind of weather is. While you can’t beat a sunny July day on Long Island Sound – my heart really starts racing for big storms. Hurricanes, blizzards, and floods are a challenge to forecast and are why I got into this field. If I had to pick a type of weather that gets my adrenaline pumped the most it’s severe weather – tornadoes, strong winds, hail, and lightning. While we don’t get much of it here in Connecticut we can get whacked every so often.
