Petroleum Geologist at Champlain Oil Co., VTApr 2022 - Present
- Led a team of 4 junior geologists in the exploration and development of 3 new oilfields, which resulted in the production of 10 million barrels of oil.
- Negotiated and secured leases for 2,000 acres of land near potential oil reserves, which led to the discovery of 1 billion barrels of recoverable crude oil.
- Conducted extensive geological surveys that identified 5 new areas with high potential for containing commercially viable quantitiesof natural gas reserves.
- These discoveries led to the successful drilling and extraction operations that netted 100 million cubic feet per dayin natural gas production.
- Authored or co-authored 12 papers on various aspects related to petroleum geology that were published incontemporary journals such as The American Association Of Petroleum Geologists BulletinandThe Journal Of Sedimentary Research.
- Delivered presentations detailing my findings at 6 international symposiums on petroleum geology,which furthered interest and investment in exploiting previously underdeveloped resources inthe United States.
Senior Petroleum Geologist at Vermont Oil & Gas Co., VTJul 2017 - Mar 2022
- Successfully drilled and completed 7 horizontal wells in the Bakken play with an average production of 700 BOEPD over the past 3 years.
- Achieved a 75% success rate on projects undertaken, while maintaining a below industry-average well cost of $7.5 million per well.
- Successfully negotiated and acquired key leases in prime acreage positions within the Williston Basin totaling 10,000 net acres.
- Managed a team of 5 geologists responsible for new project development and exploration activities in North Dakota.
- Prepared successful proposals to secure $50 million in funding from private equity firms for drilling program.
Lead Petroleum Geologist at Green Mountain Energy Co., VTAug 2012 - May 2017
- Successfully led a team of 5 petroleum geologists in exploring and developing 3 oil fields, which yielded a total of 2 million barrels of crude oil.
- Successfully negotiated with landowners for drilling rights on 4 separate occasions, securing leases for the company to explore and develop new potential oil fields.
- Identified 6 previously undiscovered pockets of crude oil, which were successfully developed by the company and yielded over 1 million barrels of crude each.
Bachelor of Science in Geology at University of Vermont, VTAug 2008 - May 2012
I have learned how to communicate effectively with people from diverse backgrounds, how to work independently and as part of a team, how to manage my time effectively, how to write reports and scientific papers, and how to use a variety of geological mapping and analytical software.

- Led a team of 4 geologists in conducting an oil and gas exploration study that resulted in the discovery of 2 new natural gas reservoirs.
- Played a key role in developing a new method for extracting oil from shale formations, which led to increased production by 20%.
- Successfully predicted the location of 3 major oil deposits, which were later confirmed through drilling operations.
- Authored or co-authored 5 scientific papers on various topics related to petroleum geology.
Senior Petroleum Geologist at Marathon Petroleum, SDSep 2018 - Mar 2022
- Successfully completed a three-year project to map the oil and gas reserves in an area of 10,000 square kilometers.
- Successfully drilled and tapped six new wells in previously unexplored areas, resulting in increased production by 30%.
- In charge of a team of 20 geologists responsible for exploring and mapping potential drilling sites.
- Authored or co-authored 12 papers on various aspects of petroleum geology.
- Presented findings at international conferences 15 times.
Lead Petroleum Geologist at Noble Energy, SDJul 2012 - Jul 2018
- Led a team of 5 petroleum geologists in conducting an oil and gas exploration project that discovered 2 billion barrels of crude oil reserves.
- Successfully mapped out the underground structures of an area containing potential oil and gas reserves, leading to the discovery of new deposits.
- Developed a novel method for predicting where natural fractures occur in rock formations, which increased the success rate of drilling operations by 20%.
- Authored or co-authored over 50 scientific papers on various aspects of petroleum geology, helping to advance the state-of-the art in this field.
