Mr. Oil & Gas

About Me:

After working in a major oil company for 3 years as a reservoir engineer, I still felt unfulfilled. Although I was classified as a “high flier” (put myself on a lot of projects, built new tools, was the first to be offered new opportunities), I still felt like I was just a number. I joined a banking role and love it but I want to take the next step!
