Last meal on death row: Bacon cheeseburger, with a fried egg on top… and it’s so far and away the winner that I don’t even have a second choice.

Food Trucks: Yum or yuck? It’s food… that drives to me… what’s not to love?!?

Favorite DFW late-night food: Does beer count?

13: Lucky or unlucky? Lucky!

You should hear me sing:  Everything… and not because I’m good, just because I don’t care and I sing with reckless abandon.

You know you’re in/from Texas when: Frito Pie?!? What is the deal with the Frito pies?!?

Frito Pie

Frito Pie

Behind my back they say: “Oooo look at dat back!”

What keeps me going: A combination of weather analysis and Tupac quotes.

I’m known around the newsroom for: I’d like to say my charm and quick wit… but the real answer is for stinking up the building with microwaved fish at 3am. :/10659272_471836539649487_8317072369535563115_n

Johnny Depp Willy Wonka or Gene Wilder Willy Wonka? Any Wonka is a good Wonka.

Favorite Viral Video:  Cats failing miserably at jumping.

If I had free time, I would: With 3 jobs currently, the only thing I would do with spare time is nap.

Chocolate or vanilla?  I’m down with the swirl.

Swirl Ice Cream

 High five or fist bump? I’m more of the “bro-hug-double-back-tap” guy.

Secret celebrity crush?  Too many to list… but Natalie Portman, Halle Berry, and Hermione Granger are high on that list.

Fad you are embarrassed you got into:  I really don’t do fads, so I’m safe here!

Best DFW tradition: Seeing Four Day Weekend comedy improv troupe, featuring the funniest man alive, EO’s own Oliver Tull!

First thing you would do if you woke up as a member of the opposite sex? I like my job… so let’s just move on.  :)

Favorite CW33 show: Other than EO and NewsFix? I’ll catch some Arrow.

arrowIn which reality TV show would you most likely be found? I don’t do reality TV, but had I not chosen weather as a career you could have caught me in the NBA.  ;)

Best superpower: Being able to tell the future… my forecasts would be unstoppable!!! Mwwwwhahahahhaha!!!! <evil villain laugh>

Kevin Bare Feet Weather

Superstitions?  Other than my lucky underwear? Going two years strong in these bad boys!!!

Why NewsFix and Eye Opener? I couldn’t deal with another year of “normal news/weather” — so monotonous. Give me change or give me death! (but… not really, I’d still rather live)

EO Crew Fists Up

Favorite family tradition: Every year at Christmas one person in the fam picks the music, and it alternates each year. My brother does heavy metal, my sis goes emo, and I stick with gangsta rap. Always makes for a fun day!

Flipping channels, the movie you always stop on: “They can take our lives… but they will never take… our FREEDOM!!!!” (Braveheart, all day every day)

Braveheart

I give back to my community by: School talks! I absolutely love talking to school kids about weather.

Backstory: I’m often described as “lovably-nerdy,” a title I consider to be the ultimate compliment! I have a Bachelor’s in Science from THE Florida State University and a Master’s Degree in Atmospheric Science from Mississippi State University. My strong science background is paired with a personality that is, at best, quirky (and at times downright goofy), allowing me to provide a forecast which is both informative and entertaining. Outside of the studio, I teach at a local university as well as providing sports-weather forecasts for NFL and MLB games. I’m a bit of a social media addict, so hit me up on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
