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