He has a passion for dealing with complexity and ambiguity and has served as a trusted advisor to business leaders in their quest to address challenging opportunities involving business and asset values.
In the area of decision analysis, he has achieved success in advising on development and execution planning of large-scale investments and providing guidance on asset valuation challenges; especially when the petroleum hydrocarbon system is complex, the fiscal system is challenging, and failure risks are high.
