Storm Chasing

The most extreme storms on earth

Each yeah 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 this rock of ours called Earth. You can also view videos on my Youtube Channel
