My name is Jason Godwin. I was born in and raised in South Louisiana. Growing up on the Gulf Coast, I quickly gained an interest in hurricanes. My first hurricane was Hurricane Lili in 2002, though the worst one I was in was Hurricane Gustav in 2008. I was also brushed by Hurricane Rita in 2005. After graduating high school, I attended University of Oklahoma where I received a Bachelor's of Science in Meteorology. From there, I went to graduate school at the University of Miami's Rosensteil School of Marine and Atmospheric Science where I received a Master's of Science in Meteorology and Physical Oceanography. After a few years of work in the private sector, I now work for the National Weather Service Weather Forecast Office in Fort Worth, Texas. My professional interests include tropical meteorology, aviation, and fire weather. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, landscape photography, and amateur radio. The photo to the left is me at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah.
