I am honored to serve as President of the PASSA for 2019 – 2021. I’ve worked in the Oil & Gas industry for approximately 30 years and loved every moment. I began my career in 1990 working for Union Pacific Resources (UPR) in Fort Worth, TX. I worked for UPR for 10 years until Anadarko Petroleum bought the company in 2000. I chose to not move to Houston and started looking for another Oil & Gas job. I was fortunate to find another job at Burlington Resources (BR) located right down the road from UPR’s office. I worked for BR for seven years until ConocoPhillips bought the company in 2007. I chose not to move to Bartlesville, OK and again started looking for another Oil & Gas job. About the time I started looking for a job, the Barnett Shale play was getting hot and Fort Worth was becoming a hopping Oil and Gas town. I again was fortunate to find my third Oil & Gas job working for EOG Resources located right down the road from BR. After eight years of working for EOG in our Fort Worth division, I was transferred to San Antonio to work in our Eagle Ford division operation’s accounting group. I’ve now been in San Antonio for almost five years.

As President, I have three simple goals this COPAS year:

  1. Provide the best Oil & Gas industry speakers to help broaden our industry knowledge.
  2. Keep PASSA informed of all COPAS national meetings, events, and publications that are currently being worked
  3. Grow our PASSA membership.

I thank all the folks that registered this year. Myself, the Board and Committee Chairs are looking forward to serving you.
