Throughout my early career as a geoscientist I have worn many different hats. Serving HGS and geoscience community has been a rewarding experience filled with thought-provoking conversations, technical challenges, and most of all, friendly faces. I attended my first HGS event back in 2016 when I was interning with IHS Markit. It was a geosteering course hosted by the NeoGeos at the Black Labrador Pub in Montrose where I and 30 other motivated young professionals sought to develop our skills to be competitive in O&G workforce during a downturn. After attending this event, I knew I found an organization I could be a part of and make a difference. Eventually in 2018 I was able to take over as Chairman of the NeoGeos as my first official role in the Houston Geological Society. Since then, the committee and I have hosted many events and added a new spin to networking with the addition of Geoscience Trivia Nights.
Now that I am about to enter my 3rd year as Chairman of the NeoGeos, running for a Board position is the next step in contributing to the Houston Geological Society. If elected to the board, I hope to make an impact by infusing a fresh take on the direction of the geoscience community as a young professional and provide new ideas to progress the organization through the early 2020s.
