Weather has always been a huge part of David’s life. Growing up in Arkansas placed him front row to many severe weather events in the aptly named “Tornado Alley.” Trading tornadoes for hurricanes, David moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to study meteorology at North Carolina State University. During his time at NC State, he was president of the college’s broadcast meteorology club and gave live weathercasts on the award-winning UNC student-run broadcast, Carolina Week.

After graduating, David moved back west to Columbia, Missouri to work with KMIZ as their weekend meteorologist. After 6 months, an opportunity allowed him to be closer to friends and family back on the East Coast. David then spent the next two years working at WDVM in Hagerstown, Maryland, a short drive away from D.C. and Baltimore. As their morning meteorologist, David forecasted everything from historic flooding, widespread wind damage, tornadoes, and snowstorms. He is happy to be back in the Carolinas (and back to warmer weather) with News 2! David has close family ties to Mt. Pleasant and Charleston and can’t wait to enjoy the Lowcountry for himself and his fiance. You can catch David’s forecasts on weekend evenings on News 2.

When not forecasting the weather, he loves traveling to see family and friends or to simply explore a brand new place. When not traveling, he enjoys watching movies, cooking, hanging out with his fiance and springer spaniel, playing mandolin, and video games.
