I am a petroleum geologist whose primary interests lie in clastic sedimentology and stratigraphy. For much of my career, I have served as a consultant, performing a variety of reservoir characterization and exploration projects that have required solution of complex stratigraphic problems and quantification of geological information for use in reservoir simulators. I have also explored for oil and gas with onshore U.S. independents, and early in my career with majors, generating prospects in the Gulf Coast, Midcontinent, and Rocky Mountain regions.

Areas of Expertise

Clastic sedimentology, Sequence stratigraphy, Integrated reservoir characterization, Log analysis and petrophysics, Underground gas storage.
