    My interests are simple for this day and age, I'm simply trying to get by like every one else! What ever I do, I try to be fair, reasonable and respectful! I expect nothing less, I try to be a good role model, and I still believe in family morals and standards. A hand shake is still good enough for me, because after all that's all we really have. I'm interested in seeing my grand children grow up and becoming useful members of society. I like to fish, hike, and do what I can for the ones who matter. After all it's not about getting rich, it's about getting by, if there's any thing left after that then there' some thing left for a rainy day.


   I'm interested in working for your company. I have 27 years experience in the drilling industry, with 13 years at the drilling console. In that time I have had zero lost time incidents, and zero hrs. down time due to operator error. I'm very proud of that! If given the opportunity, I feel that I would be an asset to your company. I have a very good understanding of rig-up and rig-down procedures, drilling operation's, pipe talley's, running casing,  and cementing. I am available to start January 2nd. 2014. Transportation is not an issue.


    My goal, or objective is to gain full time employment with an IADC drilling contractor, or alternatively a company that is linked to the drilling industry . I have 13 years of drilling experience, but would be happy with any position. I have the knowledge to work any position on the rig. I'm a very  hard working, punctual person and I take pride in my work. I would appreciate the chance to work with you and your company. I am available Monday, February 13, 2012  relocating and / or transportation are not an issue.  I appreciate your time and consideration.
