About Me

My Trip To NYC

It is amazing how time flies.  Here’s a glimpse at my timeline:

80s – I was born.  I went to elementary school in Moon Township during the 80s.  I played baseball even though I didn’t want to.  I do remember actually playing third base once.  I think I was pretty nervous.

90s – I started the 90s in elementary school, moving from Moon to Burgettstown and finished it in high school.  During that time, I was shy.  I bowled and at one point ran cross country.  I’m not really sure why I quit, but I did.  I think it was because I didn’t want to get up early and stay late after school.  Cartoons were on TV during the morning and afternoon!

00s – This was a big decade for me.  I started it by graduating high school from Burgettstown.  I was 4th in my class… not too bad!  I also started playing hockey my senior year of high school.  I got myself a job at the Airport Ice Arena, as well.  I was there for almost 7 years.  During that time, I went to PSU Beaver then transferred to Robert Morris.  I was the weather producer and meteorologist for our campus TV news.  After graduating, I got a job at Froggy 103 in Steubenville, Ohio.  That led to an offer to do an overnight shift at Froggy 98.3 in Pittsburgh but around the same time, I landed a job as the weekend meteorologist and weather producer at WJAC-TV in Johnstown.  During the 00s, I also received a certification from Mississippi State University in Meteorology.  I also earned the AMS Seal of Approval.

10s – Not a lot has changed.  I’ve become more confident, however.  I still play hockey and in 2010, I stopped working at WJAC-TV as the weekend meteorologist and weather producer and moved to Madison, WI to work for Weather Central as a trainer.  I travel to different TV stations across the country teaching people how to use the weather systems and make cool weather graphics.  My ultimate goal is to get into the Pittsburgh market.  Hopefully that’ll happen sooner rather than later!

      Hi Linda! I’m now working in Madison, Wisconsin for a company that makes the software for the weather computers the TV stations use. I’m training people and helping them build graphics. Thanks for the kind words!

    Congratuations and Good Luck. Miss your smiing face. Dont know why u left but your replacement is not half as good as you were. I bet its cold there

    • Tim say:

      Really, it’s not that bad. I left for a couple of reasons including better schedule including weekends and holidays off, better opportunity for advancement, more money, and a chance to do something I really love. Who knows… maybe I’ll be back someday. The goal is still to be a TV meteorologist in Pittsburgh.
