SLT Co-Owner and Tour Director
I have been chasing storms for nearly 30 years and amassed 638 tornado intercepts during that time, with photographs and videos of about every one of them! David Gold and I have been friends and partners for a decade and I look forward to running tours for year to come. I lead all the scheduled tours, while my wife Caryn runs most of the on call tours, as well as the awesome SLT Photography Tours.
I have been fortunate to be featured on over 50 television programs concerning severe storms, from NOVA's "Hunt for the Super Twister", National Geographic's "Twister Tours" and Twister Chasers", several Discovery Channel programs, The Weather Channel's "Storm Stories" and "Full Force Nature", Travel Channel's "Tornado Alley USA" and about every network in the US and abroad.
I have a book out called "Hunting Nature's Fury" coauthored with Mr Peter Bronski, an award winning author. I love photography and have had my works published in various magazines, calendars and text books around the world. Check out the Outdoor Photographer magazine article Caryn and I wrote for September, 2012 that covers how to photograph storms.
I have a masters degree and have taught numerous severe weather classes to schools, civic organizations and lectured around the country. During the tours, I love teaching Weather 101 to give you a better understanding of how the atmosphere works. I also teach you storm spotting and some photography/videography tips in the field.
During my spare time, I love to hike slot canyons in the Colorado Plateau, and am an avid bowler. For tons of photographs and videos, check out our personal chase website at www.stormchase.net .
