John is an accomplished storm chaser with over 28 years of experience. He began chasing storms in Minnesota and the northern plains in the early 1990's and learned how to forecast, target, and safely track tornadoes and severe thunderstorms before mobile radar and up-to-the-minute weather data was widely available.


​He expanded his chasing endeavors to the desert southwest in 1998 and has chased the Arizona monsoon every year since. His work has been featured on Good Morning America, the Weather Channel, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and several local news stations in various cities throughout the country. His weather photography has appeared around the world in major publications including the Sun, Daily Mail, Express and has twice appeared in the Washington Post as the "Photo of the Week".
