BIOGRAPHY
I live in Plano, Texas USA I grew up in the central US in what some would call, Tornado Alley. I became fascinated in the sky very early in my life. My earliest memories in life have been of the sky; you know those memories that are like a haze as they pass in time. I have been chasing in the central US for 39 years and consider myself a meteorologist and student of Atmospheric Science. I do on an average 10,000 to 20,000 miles a chase season (April, May, and June) in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. I am in awe with our atmosphere and the central plains of the US, a place where I consider the sky to become big and a part of the landscape. Go up just 5 miles into the atmosphere and we are all connected, all the people of earth are affected by the weather. The Low that brought rain to me will affect someone else somewhere tomorrow. This is the reason I chase, not just to see a tornado, but to enjoy every aspect of Mother Nature.

I would like to say a few words of wisdom to someone that might be interested in chasing. Being on the road during severe weather is not a place for someone that is not knowledgeable in meteorology. I have had my back window blown out by winds in excess of 100 mph, and hail the size of soft balls impacting my van from supercell thunderstorms that rise to 70,000 ft in our atmosphere and bolts of lightning that are hotter than the surface of the sun, hit 10 yards from my feet. I am not saying do not chase, if this is what you want, get the knowledge to do it safely or book a chase vacation. There are companies on the internet that offer tours with on staff meteorologist, although I cannot comment on them

I have experience as an EMT-Paramedic / Emergence Vehicle Operator and done tornado damage survey in Oklahoma and Texas for The Red Cross. My interest in photography started in high school when a friend invited me to take a class in photography.

This was shot in southern Oklahoma. The lightning in this storm was all must constant by that I mean a strike ever 3sec. With the CG (Cloud to Ground) and CC (Cloud to Cloud) in this storm, the sky was always filled with lightning! It was one of the most electrically charged storms I can remember.

Home to no one I shot this old farmhouse last year in northern Oklahoma. The people that lived here must have just got up and left, like the storm clouds that left the two puddles of rain, they left there home and personal possessions, it makes me wonder why and who they were. Comments welcome on it or any of my photos.

This old house is in Oklahoma, it started its life as a log cabin, and the logs are visible at the south end of the home. The north end of the home has no logs, so I think it was added later. The shot was taking this weekend 3-27-04 it is looking to the NW. there is also a water well on the land.

Hubris and humility alike are swept away by the uncaring atmosphere. The tornado doesn't care about what it encounters ... it's not evil, just unfeeling.

The Mother Road, Old US-66 in Oklahoma City this is an old highway that ran from the east coast to the west coast only a very small part of the road remains today in places, most of our highways today are 4 line interstates. US-66 was called The Mother Road by many that drove her from one coast to the other in thinking that the old road would care for them, she did.
