Born in 1981 in Oil Center New Mexico, I have been involved in all aspects of the upstream oil & gas industry. My hero’s were the old salty oilmen who worked with and for my father in the late 80’s. I wanted to be the “Company Man” since I was 6. My teachers had all thought I lost my mind. Who would want to work oil in the 80's and 90's. Looking back, I should have became a doctor. I began writing humorous posts that pointed out what we all here in West Texas were complaining about. I think if you can't see the humorous side of some of the nightmare situations we're put in, then maybe you are in the wrong line of work. I might be the one person on the face of the earth that is exactly where he wants to be and couldn't be happier to wake up in the morning and drive to the field.
