A 1992 graduate of the University of Kansas, with a degree in Atmospheric Science and an AMS Television Seal of Approval, Mike has worked at television stations stops in Nebraska, Louisiana, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Minnesota.
Mike and the other seven members of his family (wife, two sons, two cats, one fish, and one frog) are enjoying their life in the Bay Area. It's a rare day to find them apart. You are more likely to find them at the pool or beach, jumping on the trampoline, or riding bikes. Mike and his wife enjoy volunteering as much as they can at their son's schools. They are a very active family always making the most of all the Bay Area has to offer.
So how did Mike get interested in the weather? Do you remember where you were on May 6th, 1975? Well...Mike does! That was the same day an F4 tornado (207-260 mph winds) ripped a path through his city of residence (Omaha, Nebraska). The wailing sounds of winds whipping through the trees, the screams from the other kids, and the curtains flying across the room, Mike's family wasted no time assuming the safety position in the basement. Although that was a frightening experience for most, it was a career awakening experience for him. At the ripe old age of six, Mike's curiosities were piqued with an immediate goal of understanding how this tornado could level one house to its foundation, while not even touching another house just a few feet away. The scientist in Mike was born.
