He was part of Mitchell Energy’s Barnett Shale team, which was recognized with the 2013 Spirit of ECC Award for their achievements in initiating the shale play revolution.
After Mitchell Energy, Steve worked overseas for a decade, then returned to the US where he consults out of Houston, TX. Steve spends his time in the geosciences discovering new plays and trends and pushing the technological boundaries of interpretation. He enjoys researching new technologies, especially those involving smart materials and drones. His favorite meme: The Singularity.
