• A&M Consolidated High School - 2003
  • Texas A&M University - College Station, BS in Petroleum Engineering

My favorite college memory was the feeling of success when you made the grade after putting in long hours of studying in Evans Library with a big group of my then fellow students and now fellow colleagues. I was an Engineer with Hess Corp., then served as an Engineer with Alta Resources.  I participated in an asset sale in the Duvernay in 2011.  I’m the COO of Grayson Mill Energy, an EnCap backed portfolio company started by myself and two other Aggies.  The scholarship was largely why I started college as a petroleum engineer. Once in the PE program, I realized I very much enjoyed the profession, but without the scholarship I would likely have gone a different route in college. My advice to current students is to treat college like a job. Between 8:00 am & 5:00 pm, you should study and work. After 5:00 pm, take advantage of the great things college has to offer, but remember just like a job there will be nights that require extra hours.
