Geoff joined the Newswatch12 team in November 2015 as a weekend meteorologist and reporter. In 2018 Geoff received the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association award for Best Weathercast.
Geoff didn't travel far to end up in the Northwoods. A native of Grayslake, Illinois, Geoff spent his summers at the family lake house near Stevens Point. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Geoff supplemented his broadcast meteorology education with Mississippi State University.
Directly out of college, Geoff took a career detour. He entered the business world working in several large cities all over the country, including stops in Chicago, Miami, Orlando, Dallas, Phoenix, Cleveland, Atlanta and Las Vegas. While his experiences in the business world proved successful, they took him away from his true passion. In late 2013 Geoff decided the time was right to follow his dreams. He quit his job, re-enrolled in school, and picked up a full time weather internship at WGBA-TV (NBC26) in Green Bay to compliment his previous years long internships in Oklahoma City.
Geoff loves the outdoors. While he is technically always working (observing the weather is a 24/7 job!), you can also find him skiing, biking, and boating that is, when he isn't up in the air sharpening his skills as a licensed pilot and Certified Flight Instructor.
Geoff could not be happier to be working in north central Wisconsin and would love to hear from you. Feel free to reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org
