My fondest career memory or proudest moment:
While doing some consulting work in our Ho Chi Minh office, I gave a sequence stratigraphy lecture at a local university on a Sunday morning! I loved seeing budding earth scientists so enthused about the subject that they wanted to spend their Sunday morning discussing eustasy and accommodation. Their hunger for knowledge was inspiring!
