During more than 40 years of industry experience, the HGS has always been there to support me in my career. For Geoscientists of all ages and skill levels, I have observed the HGS to always be the Number One source for Networking; with the highest quality Technical Meetings and Continuing Education presentations in the industry.

As an HGS member, I have volunteered through the years in a wide range of events: working at the registration table for Luncheon and Dinner meetings, stuffed convention bags, participated in Science Fair judging, volunteered at Shrimp Peels and Golf Tournaments, learned how to shoot Skeet and helped to promote the HGS Fishing Tournament, provided liaison with other local geoscience societies, was honored to serve on the HGS Board of Directors and serve as Vice President in 2020-2021.

As an Emeritus member of HGS, I am convinced that it is my duty to contribute further to the ongoing success of the Houston Geological Society. In humble recognition of all the benefits HGS membership has provided to me, I would be honored to serve my fellow Houston Geological Society members as Vice President. My first priority will always be to continue the HGS tradition of providing outstanding technical content, to benefit the entire HGS membership. I thank you for your consideration and would appreciate your vote.
