I am originally from Shreveport, LA and moved to Texas about 8 years ago and consider Texas my home. After graduating Caddo Magnet High, I attended Louisiana State University majoring in Petroleum Engineering, although my freshman year I was a business major. After turning 18, I took my first oilfield job at Nabors Drilling as a floorhand and fell in love with the oilfield. I immediately changed my major to Petroleum Engineering and my life was devoted to learning and working in the oil and gas industry. I started at the bottom as a rough neck for Nabors drilling my first summer off from college and each subsequent break I held other positions moving up the ladder including a bit salesman for Baker Hughes/Hughes Christensen then finally as a reservoir engineer intern for Stone Energy. There I assisted the lead engineer where we discovered, wrote procedures, and oversaw a 5 million dollar workover on rig Ensco 98 that turned a well not producing to making over 10000 boepd. I went on to help start and manage two oil service companies moving up to VP of Operations to finally gained enough experience to start and own 2 of my own service companies. Due to the huge downturn in oil in late 2013, we ended up closing the doors on the well service company after 6 years in November of 2018. At that point I decided to get out of the oilfield and start a new career in the other area I grew up learning and knew best – real estate. I was raised in a family with builders and a mother in interior design, so I learned about homes from being built to decorating the final product and what can be done to improve the appearance and add the most value for money spent. It has not been an easy transition but it has been the best decision I could have made. I now greatly look forward to going to work and having the opportunity to assist people in what is normally the biggest purchase of their life. The staff and owners of Reliable Real Estate and Reliable Management are like a family and I could not ask for a better place to work. Please give us a chance on any of your real estate needs from leasing to buying or selling.
