Spanish Speaker

Expertise: Graduate studies were focused on igneous processes, magmatism and related formation of ore deposits. Professional career included exploration for base and precious metal ore deposits, coal assessment and development, and research, exploration and development in the upstream sector of the oil and gas business. Managerial positions led to development of skills in commercial analysis, strategic planning and valuation. Concurrently, led numerous teams negotiating new contracts which led to a strong grounding in analysis of fiscal regimes and petroleum contracts. Familiar with many of the world's basins and experienced in both conventional deepwater and unconventional resources. Remain very interested in the technology of extractive industries and related commercial and policy issues. As Director of the Energy and Earth Resources graduate program, my personal learning objective is to broaden and deepen my understanding of renewable resources. Have a personal passion regarding the workings of the creative process and how it is impeded. Wrote a widely read internal company newsletter called Creative Contemplations.
