WICKED STORMS A Chaser's perspective

Since my days in High school in The Catskill Mtn. regions of upstate NY, I was often referred to as "that crazy weather guy"; I should've recognized my calling then. For 20 years I yearned to be in the central part of USA known as "Tornado Alley" where I could respectfully Chase "The Fury in the Plains." In 2013, I finally decided to redirect my entire Life in that direction, one-way, 1200+ miles from anything, or anyone I once knew......Solo.

I 1st spent about 1.5 years in central Kansas. It was like living on a 300 mile diameter pool table top, nearly flat as the eye could see for 150 miles in any direction. It was fantastic for the storm visuals, even from afar, but I grew up in a mountainous region with 40ft waterfalls etc. While Chasing the extreme weather events, I soon discovered the peaceful hills and country of eastern OKlahoma and settled there; somewhere near Tahlequah, home of the Cherokee Native Americans.

ONE OF MY MANY LIFE MOTTOS:

So I began chasing the winds. I had no mentor nor comrade that I grew up with, for over 1000 miles. A stranger-in-a-strangeland life began the evolution of my destiny. I will live and die here eventually; but in the meantime, I plan on collecting imagery, data, and information for the next 30 years, that I can pass down from my legacy as education, for people that either haven't gotten to see this part of the world, or simply can't.....

It didn't take long before I was picked up by a central OKlahoma Chase team known as "The OKlahoma Storm Chasers." They have become family-like to me now. Although I have roamed from Colorado to Alabama, S. Dakota to the Mexican border, they specialize in detailed information for the entire state of OKlahoma, and the general bordering local region overall. Together, we pledge our voluntary attempts to help "Keep You Ahead of the Storm."

I've always been a lightning addict, and grew up in a world without TORNADOES; but they are an amazing visual bonus for chasing extreme weather events.

But it certainly doesn't take a TORNADO to make my day. I'm a severe weather Chaser; all aspects of atmospheric convergence have fascinated me through the years......
