About Me:

Kevin grew up in NW PA where he experienced the 31 May 1985 tornado outbreak that affected eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania and that piqued his interest in severe weather. After getting degrees in mathematics, meteorology and atmospheric science, Kevin worked at the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, OK where he was involved in Decision Support tools focusing on radar detection and assessment of hazardous weather associated with severe local storms. At NSSL Kevin was also involved in the early stages of Probabilistic Hazard Information (PHI) as well as the Forecasting a Continuum of Environmental Threats (FACETs) concept. Having made multiple trips to Colorado during this time, the mountains kept calling and Kevin took a position at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and eventually found his way back to Decision Support tool development at the NOAA Global Systems Lab. At GSL, Kevin serves as the project lead and developer focusing on implementing FACETs related concepts in Hazard Services – a tool that NWS forecasters use to issue the nation’s hazardous weather watches, warnings and advisories. Kevin and his wife (Jo), son and two puggles live in Westminster, CO
