NCMC Spring Lecture Series features Warren Faidley, the "Cyclone Cowboy,"
Warren Faidley is the original professional storm chaser, pursuing storms full-time as a journalist, cinematographer and photographer. He has received international acclaim and awards for his photography, videography and cinematography, in addition to his contributions to severe weather awareness, safety and education.
Warren is an accredited journalist specializing in the coverage of severe weather, global warming and natural disasters. Unlike the majority of people who chase storms as seasonal, recreational or as a part-time pursuit, Warren works year round -- reporting on, photographing, filming, lecturing, consulting and writing about all forms of extreme weather.
Over the past 20 years, he has experienced and survived some of earth's most breathtaking and sometimes violent weather, including an F-5 tornado, a category 5 hurricane, flash floods, firestorms, incapacitating cold, baseball-sized hailstones, rogue waves, lightning jolts, bullets, rock-slides, reptiles, sinkholes and more. It is estimated that Faidley's adventures and images reach over 20 million people worldwide every year in print, advertising, Internet, radio and on television.
TV 7&4’s chief meteorologist, Mark Watkins, emcees the lecture program.
Admission is free, but tickets are required; available at the North Central Michigan College Student Services office, fitness office and bookstore on the Petoskey campus and at the college’s Gaylord and Cheboygan offices. For more information, call North Central Michigan College at 231.348.6621.
