His 3rd generation career in the Oil & Gas industry started out as entry level boot on the ground in offshore / onshore oil & gas operations relating to production, SIMOPS & drilling. After achieving managerial roles in large scale projects, he discovered that internal compliance (incl. regulatory) was an objective that most organizations struggled with & he would specialize in that area. His regulatory knowledge became a go to for organizations. Following Macando, he was hired on with what is now BSEE to perform regulatory inspections, train inspectors & develop inspection tools. After gaining insight into both BSEE & USCG internal workings, he thought to apply that experience to again better serve the clients. Since departing the regulator, he applies the full wealth of knowledge from almost 30 years of experience to specialize in organizational effectiveness through sustainable solution(s) management system continual improvement and competency assurance to bring value add opportunities to clients.
