It would be an honor and privilege to serve the HGS as Treasurer-Elect in the 2020-2021 HGS Board. Over the past couple years, I been very active in HGS, AAPG, and multiple other organizations in the Gulf Coast area. These organizations have been instrumental in keeping me in tune with this ever-evolving industry, increasing my geologic knowledge and providing unparalleled networking. If elected, it would be my pleasure to give back to the geoscience community.
