Scotty was born in Morganton, North Carolina. A small town nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Scotty has a Bachelor’s in Science Degree from Appalachian State and meteorology certificate from Penn State. Since 2015, he has been the on-site Meteorologist for Speedway Motorsports Inc., preparing forecasts for NASCAR races in Charlotte, Bristol, Nashville and other tracks. Scotty also has been a host on the Carolina Weather Group Podcast.
Scotty has been passionate about weather since the age of 8. His love for snow storms and thunderstorms, along with the help from his mentor, retired Chief Meteorologist Eric Thomas of WBTV, he decided at a young age he wanted to learn how the weather works, and be able to help people stay informed like his mentor.
When not forecasting, you can find Scotty golfing at one of the many courses in the area, enjoying the beach, cheering on the Carolina Panthers, Appalachian State Mountaineers, and Florida Gators.
You may find him hanging out with his dog named Lola.
