For the last four years I have been living in the Netherlands, where I currently reside. After graduating from BYU, I relocated to Austin, Texas, where I finished an MS in geology, and then moved to Houston to begin work in the oil and gas industry. My career has taken me to many African and South American countries. I continue to make several trips a year to Africa, mainly Nigeria. I grew up in Utah, after which I served a mission in Veracruz, Mexico.
