In writing this article about my vision for The Weather Reporter I feel it is necessary to first talk about my experience as a meteorologist and describe my qualifications. As I write this introductory article about myself and my company The Weather Reporter I am closing one professional chapter while opening a new one. For the past 25 years I have served the U.S. Air Force and DOD as a civilian meteorologist, 22 years at Cape Canaveral AFS, Florida. I was part of a select team that supported all grounds and launches operations and ultimately provided the final weather GO-NO GO decision to senior management officials with the Air Force, NASA, and other major aerospace companies. I supported over 200 launches to include Space Shuttle and other NASA interplanetary missions, military and other national security missions, and commercial missions for several U.S. and international companies.
Through my work in the space launch business not only did I acquire a vast amount of meteorological knowledge and experience, I also learned the value of operational site specific and time specific weather forecasting. My vision for The Weather Reporter is to utilize the meteorological and customer support skills and lessons I have learned in the space launch business weather support and apply them to everyday business support. Whether it is a contractor on a deadline to lay concrete or roofing shingles, a promoter of a major outdoor event wondering whether to order and put up tents for guests, or a private fishing charter company scheduling customers, they all share the same risk when it comes to the weather. My goal is provide the customer with expert meteorological consultation so an informed business or event decision can be made when it comes to weather and risk management.
My passion for meteorology and desire to provide the best support possible to my clients is my motivation. TWR will provide detailed oriented weather forecasts tailored to the specific industry, business, or event. TWR will provide no nonsense weather support without all the ‘TV’ style and generalized information.
