I am a recent college graduate looking to transition from oil and gas to an exciting career in the technology industry.  I have extensive experience from my most recent role as an Offshore Support Engineer for the Shell Oil Company, where I held the responsibility of being the only offshore engineering support on a deep water production platform.  My internship experience ranges from the design and development of corporate office furniture to maintenance and reliability engineering in an oil refinery.
