I was born in Hialeah, Florida in 1971, and we moved back to Rhode Island in 1973 and settled in Johnston, where I grew up until graduating from Lyndon State College in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. As a child I always wanted to know how air moved, and I ran towards not away from thunder and lighting and various other ominous weather phenomena, thus my interest in meteorology. I returned in 2001 to the old family neighborhood of Elmhurst where the Mccabe's, Donnelly's, Walker's and Callan's have been since after the Civil War. My lovely wife Jessica, our two kids Luke and Sarah have enjoyed our time on Pleasant Valley Pkwy and look forward to many more year here. I am an avid golfer, runner, reader, hack guitarist, and walker, so if you see a weatherman walking in a blue Jim Cantore weather jacket carrying an umbrella, look out!
