My favorite college memory was the annual TAMU SPE golf tournament. This was an event that I looked forward to every year. It was a great day of interaction between current and former Aggies with a mutual interest of oil and gas. While in school, I served as TAMU SPE Treasurer and TAMU SPE President. After graduate school, I went to work for Devon Energy. Devon had a great rotational programming allowing me to work in the field for a full year where my time was spent on well locations, frac jobs and drilling rigs. After a year, I moved to the office in Oklahoma City and spent a short time working operations before landing in my permanent role as a reservoir engineer. In 2010, I was presented with an opportunity that I could not pass up (and not just because it got me back to Texas). I started working for a small private equity backed company called Double Eagle Energy Holdings. I have been with Double Eagle for almost two years working as a reservoir engineer focused on Permian and Rockies assets. I enjoy the fast paced and quickly growing environment, and I believe that I am a part of a group that will take advantage of current commodity prices. The best part of receiving the SPE-GCS scholarship for me was the networking. I met industry professionals and other students who also received the scholarship at the scholarship banquets. My advice to current students is to make the most of the time that you have to get to know your fellow classmates. These are people that you will cross paths with during your career. Contact me at
