Brian Dooling

Hey! My name is Brian; I grew up in Milford, Connecticut and still live there today. I have been a weather enthusiast my entire life and still get excited every time a snowflake falls or I hear a clasp of thunder! Weather is a huge part of who I am and has impacted the way I learn, as well as the education I have received. I have a B.S. in Geography, almost done with my MA in Geography and currently working on a certificate in Digital Publishing. I have also recently developed a love for photography and luckily was able to take some amazing photos during all the crazy weather in 2011, which I hope to share! I feel Connecticut is a very unique location that gets to experience a large spectrum of weather throughout the year and all you can do is sit back and enjoy it!
