Joseph Brady: Website Director


Hello, my name is Joseph Brady. I am currently a junior at CSM and this is my first year as Website Director. Oil and gas is such a special industry because it incorporates so many interesting things, from geopolitics and geology, to the advanced technology used, there are so many factors which must be weighed making it the ultimate puzzle. I am founder and president of the CSM SPWLA chapter and a member of the Petrobowl team here at Mines. I enjoy the outdoors, traveling and reading.
