“Don’t Say Oil” is a conversation about the evolution of Mike’s personal life and career as a native Californian seeking to spread the truth about the energy we consume every day. The oil and gas industry has become a political volleyball and media punching bag for all things climate change.
Are we as an industry to blame? What can we do to solve it?
Let’s find out. Until then, don’t say oil. 


Mike was born and raised in San Diego where he enjoys living the beach life with his awesome wife and three kiddos. Mike is an independent investment banker with FieldView Capital, which he founded in 2008. After brokering private equity deals from 2008-2017, Mike shifted to operator life. 
In 2018, Mike started Premier Resource Management with two partners in Bakersfield, CA. PRM is developing an energy project on the West Side of the oil-rich San Joaquin Basin. Californians for Energy & Science is a nonprofit organization that Mike started in 2022 to study the benefits of locally produced energy. 
Mike holds a BA in Economics-Pepperdine University (2005), Master of Energy Business- University of Tulsa (2016), and Master of Environmental Management- Duke, Nicholas School of the Environment (2021).
