A native Houstonian and proud Texan by birth, Steven's cultural and technical roots are naturally and irreversibly intertwined within the oil and gas industry. His range of operations, engineering, and major capital project experience spans multiple sectors within this very diverse energy vertical.

Professionally, Steven's 22-year career inside engineering offices, operations centers, control rooms, refineries, chemical plants, shipyards, ports, as well as onshore and offshore oil and gas production facilities around the world provide him with a unique perspective concerning society's fundamental dependency upon resilient critical infrastructure. This insight gives Steven a deep appreciation and love for the culture that defines oil and gas, and a thorough understanding of the stringent requirements by which organizations must adhere to ensure safe, reliable, and secure operations under very unforgiving and harsh environmental conditions.

Steven blends information security risk management, industrial control systems (ICS) engineering, safety instrumented systems (SIS) engineering, SCADA infrastructure engineering, maritime navigation and communications facilities installation, terrestrial and wireless telephony design, and management of core IT infrastructure services for the largest oil and gas organizations in the world into an interesting package focused on safety, security and resiliency.
