Q&A with Steven Glazier
What inspired you to become a meteorologist?
My parents inspired me. I spent my summer weekends at New England Dragway in New Hampshire where my dad was a drag racer. He asked me to watch the weather for him. I had to monitor temperature, humidity, pressure changes, wind direction, sky cover, ,etc. because all of those weather variables affected his race car. Together, we calibrated his car together, based on the weather, so it could run up to its full potential.
What is your most memorable weather experience?
Recently my most memorable weather experience was covering Hurricane Matthew in the Bahamas. I was only about 30 miles from the eye of the hurricane, which was a major hurricane as it passed to my west. I truly respect the power of weather and it was an eye-opening experience of how strong, dangerous, but beautiful weather can be.
Outside of weather, what are your hobbies and interests?
My hobbies and interests are exercising and sports. I love staying active. I also love food, so you'll find me in the fridge often.
Besides your parents, who as influenced you the most in your life?
I have a strong religious faith, so I'd have to say God. It pushes me every day to make a positive influence on every person I come into contact with.
What is a little known fact about you?
I call myself an 'amateur competitive eater.' I'm not up to the standards of the professionals, but I love attempting an eating challenge or two.
What are your hopes and dreams for the profession of weather?
To educate everyone about weather inside and out, protect lives and personal property, and improve the ability of forecasting.
