Edmonton AB born storm chaser, I have been intrigued by weather at a very young age. Even before I witnessed one of the largest most deadly Tornado’s in Canada. The 1987 Edmonton Tornado made an impact in my life I will forever remember. We moved to Calgary right after the 1988 winter olympics.

By the age of 18 and when I finally got my drivers license and a car, I would start little trips to the outskirts of the city and check out CG strikes. Once they started adding public radar data and when I got Internet (haha dated), I would then start checking out storms further from the city as well every once in awhile.
Fast forward to 2012, I started to chase storms old school style by printing numerical charts and checking out targeted areas. While also working on my new hobby of landscape photography, which I was still green at. Mainly watching a bunch of good lightning storms that year and failing to capture any, my co-worker informed me of a storm chase community that was based around Alberta.
2013 was the year I actually set out to capture real active weather. To which I got my first Supercell in Southern Alberta. I also learned how to properly capture lightning.
Come 2014 Ronnie of Twisted Chasers picked me up as one of their chasers. Since then I have documented many different types of weather phenomenon in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Observing 3 tornadoes in that time.
