Ed grew up in southern New England and was mesmerized by the unique weather the region had to offer. He decided he wanted to make his passion into a career, and attended Lyndon State College, graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Atmospheric Science and a concentration in how to uniquely and effectively gear operational forecasts to the private sector. Ed formerly worked for AccuWeather Inc., one of the largest private forecasting firms in the world, focusing on how weather impacts the energy and agriculture markets, and most recently worked at a smaller firm, BAM WX LLC, building relationships and a client base within the sector. He now is embarking on his own private weather consulting endeavor, Vallee Weather Consulting LLC, focusing on bringing accurate, timely weather information to the private, energy and agriculture sectors.
