I’m looking for professional growth and to work with teams of driven and passionate people on challenging problems.

Natural Gas Development

Worked with a small team to deliver 36 horizontal natural gas wells flowing 9,030 boe/d. Technical lead responsible for seismic data aquisition, processing, analysis and interpretation for investment and operations decisions. Experienced in delivering reserves and production growth through integration of seismic attributes and inervsion products into well planning and play mapping.

Enjoyed accelerated growth with budget doubling every year for 3 years. Currently flowing 52.4mmcf/d with cumulative production of 3.05mmboe.

Offshore Newfoundland - Bay du Nord Exploration and Appraisal

Technical lead, opportunity generation, analysis and predictive interpretation for offshore exploration and drilling programs within the Flemish Pass basin, offshore Newfoundland. Delivered analysis and interpretation to identify and evaluate opportunities to determine the risked value of 2015 licenses which received work commitments of 1.2 billion dollars. Responsible for influencing partner decisions and reporting on 2016 offshore drilling program.

Cap Rock Integrity for CO2 EOR and Sequestration

Fracture Detection and Mapping using 3D Seismic Azimuthal AVO Analysis

Developed inverse problem solving program in Matlab using least squares regression to detect and map anisotropy in caprock using acoustic reflection data. Interpreted and visualized results to provide recommendations on CO2 sequestration and storage project risks related to the sealing unit and presence of natural fractures.

.. in progress

Machine learning and predictive analytics for accelerated data driven decision making.

I'm enjoying several web based courses on web applciations, python and visualization.
