  1. I'm interested in helping companies develop our natural gas resources.

  2. I'm a licensed professional geologist registered in NC and several surrounding States. I have over 18 years experience in the environmental and geotecnical field. Although I currently lived in Charlotte, I was born and raised in Moore County within the Triassic Basin. I understand the environment, culture and resources of this part of the state. I would jump at the chance to assist companies to tap into this important natural resource to the regoin. If interested, please send me an email at Thank you.
