Welcome to my website. I am a storm chaser residing in central Iowa northwest of Des Moines. I am an IT professional by trade and hold an Associate in Applied Science degree in Information Technology Network Administration from Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny, Iowa and a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Computer Science from Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. I also volunteer with the local Fire & Rescue service where I live which is perhaps partly how I got my start in this stuff.  However my two main hobbies, and have been for years, are computers and weather. In some cases the two have intertwined in my work on Iowa-Skywarn.org and the Iowa Weather Network.
