How would you describe EAG?
A fast-paced, consistently evolving workspace armed with a collaborative and supportive culture that encourages growth for its employees.
What’s been one of your proudest moments working at EAG?
Clients have asked me back by name for other projects, which is always a good feeling.
What advice do you have for prospective candidates that want to join EAG?
Be ready to learn and keep an open mind; I call it being “mentally nimble” but working hard and picking up new skills and knowledge quickly is very important.
What’s one thing – either industry-related or not – you learned in the last month?
While working with them on the same project, it has been interesting to hear what the life of a non-operating, small working interest owner is like. Brings some of the work to real life.
What do you like to do in your free time? Any favorite places you like to visit?
Spending time with my family, travel, attending sporting events, trying new restaurants/bars/breweries, couch surfing events (TV/movies/video games), working out in my home gym.
Places to visit: anywhere new, my wife and I have a globe that we stick pins in for new places and it just reminds us we need to travel more!
Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
I owned the same car from the day I turned 16 until just before I turned 31. That car flooded on 4 separate occasions (street parking in NOLA during a rain storm is a dicey proposition), both door handles had to be replaced twice, burned oil for years, but refused to die. So notorious for its never-ending list of maladies it would overcome, my friends and I had a funeral party for the car when I donated it.
How do you balance your career and family?
Creating this balance is consistently a work in progress, but I carve out time in the evenings and weekends to hang out with my wife. I also try to wake up and spend some time working out and not looking at my phone as a way to give myself me time.
Who or what inspires you and why?
My wife is a RN charge nurse at Memorial Hermann in the med center and what she goes through and puts up with on a day-to-day basis, particularly over the course of the past year, is incredible.
Your life motto
Be inquisitive and constantly learning.
What’s your superpower? (What are you confident in knowing that you’re good at)
Mario Kart, comfortably navigating a restaurant wine menu, trivia, adapting to projects.
