Robbie is from Perry Hall, MD, which is approximately 15 minutes northeast of Baltimore, MD. His passion for meteorology began at the young age of five when a severe-warned thunderstorm peeked his curiosity. He has been involved with many different organizations while holding various positions in the meteorology department at Millersville University including CWS, the AMS Student Chapter, the Weather Balloon Launch Team, and the Weather Watch Team. Through the NOAA Ernest F. Hollings Program, he completed a 10-week full-time internship at NWS Memphis focused on researching the changes in rotational velocity of tornadoes produced by the remnants of tropical cyclones. He will also be completing some research on PA tornado climatology this semester through NWS State College this semester. Outside of meteorology, Robbie has a variety of interests including reading, outdoor adventures, skiing, surfing, extreme weather photography, fitness, and has recently started his journey in the sport of triathlon by completing his first full-distance IRONMAN in September of 2021.

While on TILTTING, Robbie has helped peer review the research proposal, lead the AMS Video Project, and assist the student leads with management of the project.
