Byron Turk from "Storm Chasers" is the navigator for the TIV team in the Discovery Channel reality series.

Byron Turk was born in Georgia and raised in California. He studied film in sunny Santa Barbara at UCSB. While initially interested in music and movies, his life would be changed forever when a former teacher of his, Jackie Apodaca, passed his name along to her friend Sean Casey who needed help on his IMAX movie. A summer of storm chasing later left him with a new friend and a new obsession. Hooked on the adrenaline rush and desire to conquer the ultimate challenge, he eagerly and perhaps foolishly join Sean in his quest to achieve the unachievable: Intercept and film the perfect tornado.

He also enjoys conversations with the meteorologists where they try to teach him what the clouds mean… they try ever so hard. Lack of good judgment has led him through four years and counting of this adventure. After last year's struggles, he is looking forward to a newly rejuvenated TIV2 and helping Sean film his IMAX movie. In the off season he works as a freelance filmmaker, plays the guitar in his apartment, and likes to eat cold soup right from the can. The Byron Fever … Catch It!
