I’m Ben Holcomb and I grew up in Lansing, MI. At age 26, I moved to Norman, Oklahoma where I currently reside. I’ve worked in the IT industry for nearly 2 decades and enjoy weather and traveling.
Travel is one of my favorite activities. I have visited all 50 states as well as 19 countries on 3 continents. National Parks are often my destination of choice, having visited dozens of parks.
I have a passion for chasing weather, specifically severe weather and tornadoes. At a young age I found myself fascinated with weather. Eventually I obtained my amateur radio license in 2005 and became involved with Skywarn. A couple of years later on October 18, 2007 I would go on what I consider my first storm chase. Since then I have witnessed approximately 200 tornadoes and traveled well over 100,000 miles and appeared on most national news outlets at one time or another.
I also like going to rock concerts, and seeing live music in general. I have seen over 150 bands live. My favorite and most notable concert is the final show of Black Sabbath in Birmingham, England.
I’ve always been an adrenaline junkie, and love riding roller coasters. I have ridden over 150 different roller coasters. My favorite is Skyrush at Hersheypark.
