Meet Our Team
Michael, co-founder of Hydrologica. He originally founded WEST Engineering Services and is now retired after it’s sale. He grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. He attended Hargrave Military Academy in the beautiful, tree-filled hills of Southern Virginia where he learned self-discipline and invaluable leadership skills.
He then attended Tennessee Tech and graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering. He worked almost a decade offshore in various subsea-related positions, where he recognized the need for a training, inspection and testing service provider for Blowout Preventers (BOPs). His dynamic vision led to the creation of WEST Engineering Services and later moved the company to Houston, Texas. WEST Engineering Services became the world leader on BOPs and drilling services because of their technical expertise. Currently retired, Michael focuses his attention on philanthropic efforts, especially bringing clean water access to communities in need. An avid flyer and world traveler, Michael is also a proud “Pa-pa”. He is never too busy to pull a golf ball out of his pocket for an impromptu game of catch with these good buddies.
He is someone who has always valued hard work, professionalism, and always doing things the right way; so naturally his business touts these same qualities. When he’s not covered in mud or crunching numbers, you will find him at the beach with his family, playing with his three kids and always hoping to catch a wave.
