Certified Professional Landman with forty years of continuous landwork experience and 485 hours of AAPL Certified Continuing Education. I take pride in providing a quality land service to aggressive companies interested in exploring for oil and gas and working in alternative energies. Expert title examiner and negotiator having worked in multiple Counties and States. I have a tremendous amount of experience working with title opinions, curing title defects and division of interests. My years of in-house experience combined with decades of experience working as a Field Landman provide me with knowledge to work and solve problems on any platform as a Land Professional. I work at a rapid pace in today’s fast paced market and provide accuracy and attention to detail.  The creativity and suggestions that I provide while working as a Landman are time and cost saving to my clients.

If you recognize my name it may be because I have participated in many leadership roles with AAPL over the past 17 years and currently serve as Chairman of the AAPL Field Landman Committee. I served on the AAPL Executive Committee as Third Vice President 2011-2012 and filled the role of AAPL Certification Chairman 2014-2015. I have maintained a leadership role with AAPL now for many years and have accomplished many goals in support of the land profession. I am a Past President of our local Michigan APL (MAPL) having held every local office over a span of six years and served as AAPL Region II Director representing all Michigan Landmen for five years.

It is the love of the land business, dealing with people, significant challenge and satisfaction of success that make me anxious to start each new day of landwork.
