On this episode Nick Goree (Drilling Manager at Earthstone Energy) joins us to give us his background from a physics major to switching to Petroleum Engineering and how he fell in love with drilling. We discuss everything from him taking roles that were out of his comfort zone, how his network helped him obtain his current role, to his overall industry outlook and forecast. During times like this communication is key, as well treating people with kindness. We get into the current state of affairs with the cancellation/comparison culture that’s all around us as today and how not to get overwhelmed by unplugging from everything and focus on what you can control. We then discuss what his passions are and it sounds like it would make a nice man candle: bourbon, cars and woodworking.
