Dan has lived in Connecticut his entire life, and loves working in his home state.

Like many in the weather business, Dan has always had a passion for weather. Growing up in Cheshire, he remembers being 8 years old and venturing outside during thunderstorms, much to his mother’s dismay. He spent a good chunk of his childhood reading weather books and watching tornado chasing videos. Dan is a big fan of severe weather, and loves the excitement of breaking weather news.

Dan graduated from Western Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. While at WCSU, he produced and anchored many school run weather broadcasts for the University’s website, as well as forecasts for the school’s radio station. He was a member of the baseball team, and patrolled center field at WCSU for 4 years.

After college, Dan got his start at WGGB ABC40/FOX6 in Springfield, MA, where he was the weekend weather anchor.

Dan is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist, the highest certification from the American Meteorology Society. He still enjoys brushing up on his old weather textbooks! In his meager free time he enjoys running, playing baseball, and spending time with his family.
