Braydon Morisseau

Braydon Morisseau has been fascinated by weather since he was a young boy, when he witnessed his first tornado at the age of seven during a family reunion. Braydon, who was born in Canada, has been chasing storms since 2008. He has witnessed countless weather events including more than 50 tornadoes. Over the years, he has enhanced his ability to forecast and chase these alluring giants in the sky, from the prairies of Canada to the great plains of the United States. For Braydon, “There are no words to describe the feeling when you’re standing out there, staring up at these monstrous storms. It’s an intimate encounter with the earth, but at the same time, it feels as if you have left earth completely.” While on the road, some of his favorite parts of chasing are the dim glow of gas station lights on the way to a target, meeting new people who share the same passion for storms, and stopping at the nearest hole-in-the-wall diner for a cheeseburger. The words of Braydon’s favourite philosopher, Alan Watts, say, “Better to have a short life, full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.” Braydon chases storms in order to live his dreams.
