  • University of Texas at Austin, BS in Petroleum Engineering
  • University of Houston, B.S. in Computer Science

My favorite college memories are Dr. Bommer's stories from the field.  I realized oil and gas wasn't for me and decided to pursue a career in computer science. The SPE Scholarship encouraged me to pursue a career in petroleum engineering. When I stopped qualifying for the scholarship due to poor grades, I should have realized something wasn't working out and reevaluated my career choice.  My advice to current students is to go after field work early, before you want to settle down and have a home life. Save during booms because busts are inevitable.
