I have performed various geological, engineering, and financial functions throughout my 40 year oil and gas career.   I spent 10 years finding and developing small fields as a geologist for small independents.  For 15 years I conducted and lead a wide range of technical and economic analyses in O & G as an upstream benchmarking expert and leader for an international management consulting firm.  I am currently  generating prospects in the Fort Worth Basin.  I have served previously on the Board of Directors of HGS as Director and Treasurer, as well as Treasurer and General Chair for the 2015 and 2019 GCAGS Conventions.  As a past Chair of the Office Management Committee of HGS, I am well acquainted with administrative, personnel, and financial functions of the Society, and have served on several other HGS Committees.  I enjoy serving my industry as a volunteer, and my experiences have given me insights in governance issues within our professional societies.
