I am a Meteorologist who lives in the state of Minnesota. I live in the city of Hugo, which is about 20 miles north of St. Paul.
I work along with my father,Bruce Watson, who is also a Meteorologist. I guess you could say he is the one who inspired me to become a Meteorologist. I really can't pinpoint a certain storm or weather incident that aroused my interest in the weather. I've always enjoyed it when my father would take me along while he was conducting field studies. Being outdoors and visiting different parts of the state sounded like a lot more fun then going to an office every morning and working behind a desk. Plus with the weather it is something different everyday.
My work history includes working at EarthWatch Communications
from 1993 to July 1998. At EarthWatch I worked in many different
departments from customer service to sales and marketing.
KARE-TV, 1982 to 1993. My duties at KARE included producing the weather segment and forecasting.
I enjoy working on computers and have written several database programs and I've tried my hand at web page building.
