Simon Brewer Meteorologist and Stormchaser

Simon Brewer is a meteorologist, storm chaser, photographer, and videographer featured in several television series and extreme weather related programs, most recently "Storm Riders" on The Weather Channel. Simon was born and raised in Dayton, OH. He moved West to study meteorology in Oklahoma receiving his B.S. Degree in Meteorology from the University of Oklahoma in the Spring of 2008.

Simon began chasing storms in the Fall of 1999. His passion for weather and photography grew into a career as he now chases storms all over and even outside of the United States. A few of the more intense weather events he's documented include: the 2.5 mile wide Hallam, NE and 2.6 mile wide El Reno, OK tornadoes, which are the 2 widest tornadoes in recorded history. He's documented hundreds of tornadoes, thousands of storms, and 15 tropical cyclones including Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ike, and hybrid Superstorm Sandy in his 15 plus years of storm chasing.

Besides violent tornadoes and hurricanes, Simon also documents floods, hail, blizzards, ice storms, wild fires, dust storms, volcanoes, earthquakes, and astronomical events. He enjoys sharing his passion for weather and nature with the world through his television shows, publications, blog, website, and Twitter Feed. Several positive results of his chasing include providing information to Meteorological researchers and organizations, reporting helpful information during dangerous life-threatening events, and sometimes providing assistance to storm victims, human and animal alike. He also enjoys running, hiking, backpacking, and disc golf.
