30+ years in the upstream oil and gas industry, working with majors, energy banks, small to large independents and high-net worth individuals. Serial entrepreneur with several successful start-ups (so far). Live and work in the heart of the oilpatch; very active in upstream A&D, operations, education, engineering and finance. Active in management of personal and family investments for 20+ years, increasingly so with size of portfolio and available time. Focus is oil and gas first, then blue chips. Dividend yield is a priority.
