I started my career as Drilling Operations Manager offshore for PEMEX, reviewing drilling reports and assisting with other office duties. After 6 months, I took the opportunity to be a Field Engineer Cadet offshore.

I decided to join Seadrill because it is the best drilling contractor.

It is a reference into the drilling world. I want to develop my career with the best.

Every day offers a challenge – the chance to gain experience, improve and be more competitive.

I am working among the best Rig Managers, so I need to give my best to be part of this successful team.

The Seadrill culture is inspiring.

Every person lives it in different way, but we all share a loyal commitment to the job, each other and the client - to give the best we can. The whole team has a great attitude.

On West Courageous, the work is challenging – but the feeling of doing a good job is a joy.

We have one Jack up 350’ rig with technology capable of drilling wells up to 30,000ft deep.

We are always training, to be more efficient and competent to carry on the operations in the safest possible manner.

When the hard work is done, I spend my free time with my wife and three young children. We go to the beach, the pool or the park and have a very nice time together.
