My ability to work as a team player, meet deadlines under highly stressful conditions, and motivate personnel and teams, together with my penchant for detail, have contributed to my successes in the petroleum industry. I have performed and directed a wide variety of activities, including design and planning of wells, geographical survey analysis, borehole stress and fracture analysis, vibration analysis, drilling optimization processes, and BHA design. As a field engineer I must be manage people and operations, and be able to utilize my skills in science, engineering, and mathematics on a daily basis. I am adept at determining well feasibility, and maximizing production.

My outgoing and friendly nature allows me to interact well with personnel at all levels, and I pride myself on bringing the right measure of enthusiasm into the equation. In addition, I am skilled in working with clients on well pre-planning, and am able to identify and resolve potential issues before physical operations begin.
