Storm Chasing


Each year I travel thousands of miles across the great plains of the United States in search of observing tornadoes and supercells. This website is a collection of my experiences in pursuit of violent winds and some of the most extreme weather in the world. When I’m not working or chasing storms, I enjoy traveling to beautiful places around the world. You can also view videos on my Youtube


  • April 1, 2024 - A moderate risk on April Fools day that failed to materialize (321 Miles)
  • March 24, 2024 - A funnel near Hammon Oklahoma on a moisture starved early season chase (458 Miles)
  • September 23, 2023 - A Fall Saturday chase in Eastern Oklahoma provides some good storms and lightning. (274 Miles)
  • June 25, 2023 - On a supercell near Indianapolis that becomes outflowy and evaporates while a nearby storm produces a beautiful tornado. (1692 Miles)
  • June 21, 2023 - Strong tornado hits the town of Matador, Texas (737 Miles)
