Born in the Midwest, Jeff moved to Columbus just before he turned two and was raised in the Capital City.
After graduating from Bexley High School in the mid-90s, Jeff attended Ohio University where he graduated in 2000 with a degree in education. It was there that he first got into broadcasting, working in college radio and eventually hosting a weekly television show on the local public access channel.
About a year after graduation, Jeff went back to school and landed his first full-time job in television at WOAY in West Virginia in early 2002. There, Jeff did just about everything: weather, reporting, shooting and editing video and anchoring the news.
From there Jeff moved to WLIO in Lima, Ohio taking on weekday morning weather duties. His next job took him all the way to the middle of the Pacific Ocean when he was hired in 2004 as weekend weather anchor & reporter at KGMB in Honolulu, Hawaii. While in Hawaii, he earned his American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association seals of approval and in 2007 he helped launch the morning newscast “Sunrise on KGMB” as the morning meteorologist and traffic reporter.
In 2009 after enjoying immeasurable amounts of both professional and personal success, Jeff’s family was growing and decided it was time to head back to his home state. He accepted the Chief Meteorologist position at WKEF & WRGT in Dayton, Ohio. His third daughter was born a few months later. Throughout all the moving Jeff always kept Columbus (and THE Ohio State Buckeyes, O-H…) close to his heart. When he had a chance to move home from Dayton, he jumped at it.
Jeff can’t wait to bring you the weather of Central Ohio. His wife and three daughters are excited as well. Along with the Buckeyes, he’s also a huge Cincinnati Reds fan, in both good years and bad ones. He’s also a big fan of math and science and loves talking about it with those who will listen (his kids aren’t always in that camp). If you see him out and about feel free to say “hi”.
