Shaun grew up near Mayerthorpe, AB and from an early age was exposed to farming, construction and the oilfield. He worked on the neighbors farm as a teenager and helped out with the family business of building portable camps and trailers before working in upstream oil and gas. He holds diplomas in Petroleum and Mechanical Engineering Technology from NAIT, and has worked in these disciplines in both the field and office for over 15 years. After college he initially worked as a Design Drafter for Oil Country Engineering. Shaun went on to manage projects for the design and fabrication of several flagship rigs, and completed inspections of drilling equipment throughout North America.
Shaun supports projects at Rus-Tec in construction, equipment design, fabrication and inspections, with a focus on Builder Services.
