Croix grew up in Saint Paul, Minnesota, no stranger to snow, where he developed his passion for the outdoors and snow. His favorite "chore" as a child, and to this day, is shoveling snow. This obsession with snow has remained a constant thread throughout his life, with a commitment to arriving early for first tracks on powder days.
He attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received his BS and MS in Atmospheric Science. He worked for the National Weather Service, TV stations, and private weather companies before recently moving into the healthcare analytics industry. When not working, you will find Croix exploring his Duluth, Minnesota backyard by skiing, mountain biking, fishing, surfing, hiking with his dog Doppler, or just about any activity that gets him outside.
