1. How would you describe EAG?

Making what appears to be impossible, possible with a combination of experience and creativity.

 

2. What has been one of your proudest moments working at EAG?

I was on a team that helped a new oil and gas start up client go from finalizing their acquisition to issuing checks in 90 days.

 

3. What advice do you have for prospective candidates that want to join EAG?

Be willing to learn and teach. Everyone’s experience is different. Therefore, everyone has some piece of knowledge or wisdom to share.

 

4. What’s one thing – either industry-related or not – you learned in the last month?

I have been around / involved in all business areas related to the oil and gas revenue accounting process, but I was recently able to take a deep dive into the production accounting process.

 

5. What do you like to do in your free time? Any favorite places you like to visit?

I have always enjoyed the satisfaction gained from doing things with my hands. Whether it’s landscaping work, washing a car, or cooking something on the grill.

 

6. Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

My first business trips took me inside the Arctic Circle a number of times.

 

7. How do you balance your career with other priorities?

Your family should be your full-time job. Your career should be your part-time job. Both deserve your best efforts.

 

8. Who or what inspires you and why?

My wife. She has taught me that helping someone else through a difficult time, event or season in their life may put your own difficulties into their proper perspective.

 

9. What is your life motto or favorite quote?

I have several, but I will share a couple if I may. “A rich person is not one who has the most, but the one who needs the least.” Another is too long to share here, but you can find it by searching “Attitude by Charles Swindoll”.

 

10. What’s your superpower?

I’ve found that knowing where data exists and being able to get that data to the right person in the format that makes sense to the person needing the data, greatly improves decision making and can therefore lead to great process improvements.
