Ever since he was a little kid, Hunter has found weather exciting. Growing up in central Florida, he loved the afternoon thunderstorms that rolled through every summer. After Hurricane Charley, he often wondered why storms happened and wanted to know more about the weather in general. In high school, he was a member of the dive team and the National Leadership Society. As a current senior in college, he is a member of the Meteorology Club as well as the National Society of Leadership and Success. Hunter wants to pursue a career in meteorology thanks to his uncle, who worked for NOAA and the University of Miami. After graduation, Hunter hopes to find a career in the field of theoretical meteorology.
