1. Max Pen: Could you tells us a bit more about yourself so the readers know who you are?
Shawn Gossman: Well you know my name, that is my real name. I am a 27 year old male and I live in rural southern Illinois. I have many hobbies including forum administration, programming, web design, GFX, cycling, photography, fishing and storm chasing. I am a full time manager of a security department for a large cable manufacturing plant. I am also a full time college student getting a PhD in Management of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. I have a few degrees in Criminal Justice at this time. I am a country boy but with a little bit more education and technological thrill than other country boys!

2. Max Pen: You mention you are a storm chaser, how did you become that? What sort of exp has it been so far? Ever felt in danger?
Shawn Gossman: When I was 13 years old, I was scared to death of even a clap of thunder. One night while running to a storm shelter during a tornado warning, I happened to turn around and look towards the sky where the tornado was right as lightning struck. I saw the tornado and instantly fell in love with its fury. Since then, I have chased well over 100 tornadoes all over the United States.

I have drove into them, got extremely close to killer ones and have done things that most would be way to scared to do. I don’t like death or destruction and I would rather see the tornado in an empty field. I am also a certified SKYWARN storm spotter and that is where I volunteer to spot severe weather and report it to the National Weather Service to warn people and save lives. I also own and run the National Skywarn Program forum.

3. Max Pen: Could you share with us some pictures you taken while being close at the storm/tornado?
