He also works in a strategic capacity at Nabors, helping the rest of the leadership teams to strategize around long term goals and business development as the industry changes.

He is also a well-known philanthropist in the healthcare sector among others. He is extremely vested in working with Texas Children’s Hospital. He is a member of their Board of Trustees and he and his wife, Cindy, have invested $7 million in funding for the hospital’s Neurological Institute. This is a cause near and dear to their hearts, as they have a child that was born with a neurological condition. They donate their time to multiple volunteer outlets at Texas Children’s Hospital and have made a longstanding commitment to raise awareness for Neurological Causes and to bring in additional clinical research. Their long term goal is to have Texas Children’s Hospital bring the leading Neurological Research Institute to Texas, an incredibly admirable goal. The couple enjoys giving back to many charities and non profit organizations in the Houston area and beyond.
