Bo was raised in Monticello, Illinois, a small rural town twenty minutes southwest of Champaign, Illinois. Bo is the oldest sibling of two younger sisters. After watching the 1996 movie classic Twister, Bo discovered his passion for meteorology, specifically severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.

During his time at Valparaiso University, Bo was involved in the Storm Intercept Team where he witnessed his first tornado in eastern Colorado and nearly got struck by lightning in Nebraska.

In his spare time, Bo enjoys listening to music, specifically rock, attending concerts, and storm chasing.
