6.5 years

What inspired you to do what you do?

Growing up on my Dad’s shrimp boat, I developed a fascination with both automotive and marine mechanics, as well as the love for being on the water.

What do you like about working for Omega Protein?

I like working for Omega Protein; I have the opportunity to work with the people and the equipment-both at the plant and on the boats.

Professional History

I was employed 8 years with J.P. Williams Machine and Fabrication as a Machinist and a Welder. I came to Omega Protein as a Second Engineer on the Williard O. Lebeouf; eventually became Chief Engineer on the Frosty Morn. I enjoy my job and am looking forward to many more years with the Company.

Something interesting about me…

In my spare time I collect and rebuild antique outboards and classic trucks. I also do my best to find time to fish as much as I can.
