Roger lives just east of Denver Colorado in the heart of the high plains where tornadoes and supercells rule. He has been chasing storms of all kinds for over 20 years. He has seen and videotaped over 375 tornadoes in his chasing career, and nearly a dozen hurricanes and typhoons. He chases anytime a severe weather threat exists either on his storm chasing tours or after the regular season is over often with his wife Caryn. He has also been a probe driver for various National Severe Storms Laboratory projects and has taught Skywarn training at several locations across the plains.
He has been contracted by The Weather Channel for the past 12 years to shoot and edit video of everything from tornadoes to floods to blizzards and hailstorms. He has also done much work for The Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, National Geographic, The Travel Channel, NOVA, BBC and many more. Roger is co-owner of Silver Lining Storm Chase Tours.
