The sky is the biggest stage on earth, and that's why Kinney has been chasing storms throughout the Great Plains every spring since 1995, spending 4 to 6 weeks hunting supercell thunderstorms. In the off season, he quells his passion for the hunt by working on what he calls "The Skydance Project." In essence, it's the synchronization of sky images to music, be they benign and full of soothing beauty, or menacing and bursting with unbridled fury. His musical selections range from classical to hard rock. He also enjoys lecturing on the various aspects of chasing and severe storms.
