“My introduction to the oil and gas industry was as an independent landman.  The experience that I gained and the relationships that I was fortunate enough to establish have proven invaluable over the course of my career.  For example, I have always tried to draft title opinions from the landman’s perspective seeking practical and efficient solutions to title issues.  In addition, I have worked with, and learned from, many wonderful people in the industry through the years, dedicated to providing oil and gas in an efficient, cost effective and environmentally safe manner.  I owe a lot to those who unselfishly gave their valuable time to help me along the way and that guidance has only increased my energy and enthusiasm for this exciting and innovative industry.”
