Nick has been obsessed with weather as long as he can remember. When he was younger, he was interested in weather but was terrified when thunderstorms would roll in. As Nick grew older that fear turned into a burning desire to understand severe weather. As soon as Nick got his license, he would go on local chases to see Mother Nature up close. In 2016 Nick decided to kick it up a notch and start traveling to Tornado Alley to see some of the most stunning weather our planet has to offer, having documented nearly 50 tornadoes so far in his career. Nick's passion has now transitioned to public outreach and education where he has been all across the state of Illinois to share his knowledge and experience.
