Michael has been chasing storms all across the United States for over two decades. His first real encounter with severe weather was when Hurricane Gloria made a direct hit on his parents’ home on Long Island, NY. It inspired his life’s calling to chase storms with a passion.
After attending SUNY Oswego for meteorology, he has spent the last 20 years traveling the US filming the wildest weather imaginable. He’s routinely been within a couple hundred yards of massive tornadoes and has hunkered down in the center of strong hurricanes like Michael and Sandy.
During his career, Michael has had countless hours of footage air on major news outlets like The Weather Channel and World News Tonight.
Based in Long Island, New York, Cary is armed with an extensive background in meteorology and has been chasing storms for over 20 years. He is also an FAA licensed pilot and chases severe weather in the plains and monsoons in Arizona annually.
In 2016, he founded SVLMedia, a video brokerage firm with a roster of over 130 storm chasers. The company’s focus is to license the chasers’ footage to major networks, generating income for a hobby they love.
Many of Cary’s chases have been documented on networks like The Weather Channel, ABC, NBC, and CBS. In 2017, his photography of the total solar eclipse was featured in a Warby Parker ad campaign.
