New Resource Advisors for the Wind River-Bighorn Basin District
By Sarah Beckwith, Public Affairs Specialist, Wind River-Bighorn Basin District
Stuart was born and raised in Lewistown, Mont. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in petroleum engineering in 1983 from Montana Tech in Butte and worked for various oil and gas companies until 1985, when he was hired as a petroleum engineer at the BLM’s Worland District Office. He served as the petroleum engineer in the Lander Resource Area and the Lander Field Office from 1988 until he was selected to be the Wind River-Bighorn Basin District Resource Advisor for Energy Resources on Oct. 12, 2009. Stuart also has ten years of experience as an instructor for the BLM’s National Training Center where he teaches oil measurement for the Inspection and Enforcement Certification Program.
In his off-time, Stuart spends time outdoors hunting, fishing, skiing and hiking. He likes to play music (guitar, mandolin and bass), dance, travel, and attend music venues. He also enjoys cooking, home improvement projects, and is currently working on restoring a 1976 VW Bug with his son.
Although it’s been 30 years since his first fire assignment, he continues to support wildfire efforts as a task force leader, burn boss and in other support positions. When not fishing, he can often be found golfing at the Worland Country Club.
