Born & raised in Alaska. Grew tired of 300 days of clouds and attended Arizona State University where there was 300 days of sun. Love the outdoors including hiking, biking, and camping.
After graduating college, I worked for Schlumberger's Reservoir Evaluation group for 6+ years as a Field Service Engineer, Instructor, and Field Service Manager. Led wireline service operations in onshore, offshore, and remote locations. Enjoyed the experience in many locations including Venezuela, South Texas, Alaska, Indonesia, Egypt, and Utah.
I then worked for Emerson's Rosemount Division for 5 years in a variety of Global Marketing roles supporting oil & gas customers modernize their automation practices to improve safety, increase field operator productivity, and decrease lost production.
After working for two large corporations, I then spent 6+ years leading Global Sales & Marketing for two mid-size businesses; OFI Testing & Equipment and SOR, Inc. Both companies having much of their business in the oil & gas markets.
