My favorite memory from college was the brilliance of the professors and how hard they worked to reach their students with their knowledge and experience so that they could be prepared for a successful career in the Oil and Gas Industry. I worked at BP in Amarillo as a Production Engineer until they choose to sell off the majority of their domestic onshore assets. I now have worked at Intertek for two years as an Oil and Gas Lab Supervisor performing analytical as well as hands-on work that better suited my skill sets as a hands-on kind of person. The SPE-GCS scholarship was a great help in getting connected to many people throughout the industry. I was able to meet and create contacts with many different companies that gave me both the network and the confidence to find a job easily. My advice to students is to use your time wisely and use every opportunity to network and to grow in knowledge of the industry. College is one third about book education, another third about growing career networks, and the last third about maturing into a man or woman with a strong work ethic and high integrity. Contact me at
