Hi, I'm Ian. I known around here for my expertise in Microsoft Paint. (hence why my maps are just so pretty!) I also have absorbed the role as the WVPAW.com webmaster due to my uncanny ability to resist the urge of smash my computer when .php coding doesn't go the way I want it.
Aside from that, I am married to my lovely wife Nikki and we have three boys together. We reside in the Pocono Lake Region up here in the woods of Pike County. We have three dogs and two cats!
I am a US Army veteran and served with the 1-109th Infantry Battalion PAARNG. When I am not entrenched in the weather world my other hobby is reef keeping where I keep all types of marine species including fish, corals, and many inverts.
I have obtained a Certificate of Meteorology. My specialties are severe weather forecasting, tropical forecasting, climate analysis, and mesoscale meteorology.
