Additionally, in the early 2010s I went back to school and completed my degree in the geo-science and broadcast meteorology fields, which allowed me to get back into commercial radio, but as a radio dedicated meteorologist. I'm also working with Townsquare Media, a group of broadcast stations based in the Tuscaloosa and west Alabama radio market. I'm the specialty, in-house, severe, tropical, and active winter weather source for all these commercial broadcast stations. I maintain a Facebook page for storm spotters/chasers in northwest Alabama to stay linked through; additionally, my complete work history is also listed on my personal Facebook profile page."
