I have originally put together this web site back in 1996 telling you a little about myself. Since then, it has outgrown so many "hosts" that it needed a final home as "Sky-Chaser"! This should be an easy name to remember for hurricane chasing, storm chasing, severe weather, extreme journalism, skydiving, photography, travel, computer graphics and video, computer programming, Web design, and much more! I am a computer programmer / analyst, writer, skydiver (USPA C30317), amateur photographer, extreme storm journalist, and computer artist. I enjoy flying and aerobatics, boating and jet skis, surfing, HAM radio, skydiving, and videography. I am also a volunteer SKYWARN storm spotter (FL B036 / 5257) for the National Weather Service as well as a licensed HAM radio operator (KG4PJN).
"Sky-Chaser" Consulting, as this site reflects from a business standpoint, mainly specializes in storm / hurricane chasing, and other documentation of extreme weather events for media, educational, charity / benefits, and public awareness goals. This site also contains my computer consulting services in PICK (Universe, Unidata, and similar Multivalue-DB oriented) programming for many major business requirements. The "Sky-Chaser" site also has lots of information about my other sports, hobbies, and lifestyles besides storm journalism and computer consulting. I feel you should enjoy or even be able to utilize some of the areas on this web site for anything from education to entertainment ... And be sure check back often, because it is updated on a continuous basis!

ATLANTIC TROPICAL SEASON IS FROM JUNE 1 TO NOV 30 - BE PREPARED
The tropical Atlantic is off to an early jump start with 3 named systems as of June 7, 2016 (with two before the official start of the season). Busy or not, always have a plan for these systems. In the image above, the view of the upper level (sheared) center of tropical storm Colin can be seen while overflying the storm between Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Chicago, Illinois aboard a Boeing 737 at an altitude of at least 35,000 feet during the late afternoon of June 6, 2016. Be sure to check back here often to see what’s going on in the Atlantic / Eastern Pacific basin as well as any attempts on tropical chases in 2016!
The Atlantic hurricane season is upon us until November 30! Please visit my page on Atlantic tropical activity HERE for more information ... The images above shows any current tropical cyclone activity for both the Eastern Pacific (EPAC) and North Atlantic (NATL) basins, and is updated most frequently during the normal hurricane seasons for each (EPAC is May 15 through November 30 and NATL is from June 1 through November 30).
