Jackie has 20 years of diversified global experience, the last 9 years gained working in the Middle East, completing 3 mega projects. His emphasis, HSE, safety process engineering, project engineering, project management and emergency management. His portfolio entails domestic, international, government/private business sectors with dynamic skill sets encompassing EMT, Fire Fighting, QA, Operations Management, Oil/Gas/Chemical/Mining, Budgeting, dBase development, HR, Construction, Manufacturing, and Pre-Commissioning. FEED/EPC/PMC experience, including both direct experience of detail origination of design engineering deliverables. Versed in Inherently Safer Design, Hazard Identification (HAZID, HAZOP & SIL), and Consequence Analysis, QRA and Safety Critical Equipment identification as well as performance standard development. Experienced in the development of design philosophies for various safety critical systems as well as performing design activities associated with hazardous area classification, fire and gas detection, active fire protection, passive fire protection and escape and evacuation systems.
After 9 years in the Middle East I have taken a sabbatical and will seek opportunity after July, 2016.
"I've made my way up the ladder, a small town boy making my way up the ladder by hands-on experiences---from the field to a PMC Team for one of the largest projects in the Middle East--a testament of my ability and dedication.
This photo is of my first mega-construction project, a Phosphate Industrial Complex located in remote region of Saudi Arabia.
This photo is from my second mega-construction project, a Aluminium Smelter Complex located in remote region of Saudi Arabia.
And this photo is from my third mega-construction project, a Phosphate refining and mining Complex located in remote region of Saudi Arabia.
This photo is a collection of the 3 mega-projects I have been affiliated with in the last 9 years. Industrial complexes, infrastructure, feed design, construction, and operational readiness.
On multiple projects I've encountered professionals masterful in their subject matter; however, as they rise to lead they lack diversified hands-on skill sets required in today's environment--- HSE, Business Management, Process Engineering, dBase development, for example. I've worked in multiple business sectors - Government, Private, Construction, International. My hands on-experiences includes EMT, Fire Fighting, Project Management, QA, Operations Management, Engineering Design, Process Safety, Budgeting, Human Resources, Construction, Commissioning, Manufacturing, Chemical, Oil & Gas
Extensive project, program, budget, and scheduling experience gained while working in manufacturing, operations and construction sectors in the USA and Middle East.
KSA Business & Programs
Working in the Middle East required a security clearance from the Saudi Arabian Ministry, which was granted by the Higher Commission of Industrial Security (HCIS). In my role I managed multiple divisions, of which included Security, Emergency Services, HSE, Corporate Social Responsibly, Corporate Communications, and Government Affairs.
Process Safety Engineering
My experience in Process Safety is founded on my HSE construction and operations experience, which started in 1998. After 18 years of collective experiences I was afforded the opportunity to serve as the Process Safety Engineering on the Fluor PMC Team for one of the largest projects in the Middle East. A testament of my progressive ability and career path bridging risk and mega projects. Safety engineering has required extensive travel, networking with subject matter experts, 30/60/60% Design Reviews, Qualitative Risk Assessments, HAZOPS, and Construction/Environmental Permitting.I worked with design firms located in Canada, India, USA, Korea, China, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Netherlands, and UK ensuring designs met standards and engineering design requirements. And I lead HAZOP/HAZID processes.
Health Safety & Environment
I have extensive HSE Experience, below is a collection of some of the training/certs I gained along the way. OSHA Operations and Construction allowed me to build a Safety foundation. And, as a EMT I worked in the field and so I am versed in Emergency Response. This is what makes my experiences unique. I've not only gained certifications, but I have mitigated life events, in the field. As a Manager, I understand the challenges and needs---part of the Hands On skills I mentioned above.
Below are some of the Standards I have applied in the developed and management of programs in the USA and Internationally. I developed company programs from the ground up, audited, deployed systems, and developed training. And, I have developed document management systems to maintain and track company standards. In the USA I developed HSE programs (since 1997) using OSHA standards and ISO 9000, 19 years later I have a solid progressive experience path---USA and International.
As HSE Manager for a multiple petro-chemical plants in the USA I developed HSE programs in the USA. I have over 18 years experience in the HSE arena. In my role I was responsible for Process Safety Management. I developed PSM programs for chemcial plants in the USA.
Corporate Social Responsibility
In Saudi Arabia I lead a team in forming our CSR function, and helped develop plans, ensuring compliance with International Monetary Fund requirements, of which included relocation of regional inhabitants and alignment with Ma'aden CSR. An opportunity of a life time, again, While in Saudi Arabia I elected to live outside of the Expat Camp/Compound. This allowed me to integrate and succeed as a CSR Leader. I visited plants in India, studying the impacts of mega projects and operations in an effort to identify best practices and help develop enhanced approaches for Ma'aden mega projects.
The picture above was taken during a benchmarking trip to India. Understanding the social impact to a community was important. During this trip myself and the Director reviewed operations and their Corporate Social Responsibility programs, and we were able to see how a facility impacts the local community. The Aluminium project in KSA puts all of the processing activities in one location, the industrial complex, and so it was important to see and understand the gravity of the project which will be bigger in KSA, and see first hand how a mega project impacts to the community and environment. And being a native New Mexican boy from a rural village, I better was able to understand the importance of opportunity for the surrounding community. "As a native New Mexican, I was one of the first in my community to earn a engineering degree and seek a professional career path. In my quest, I found I had to move from my home, gaining experience and to seek opportunity. In summary, I realize the importance of Community development, and so I am steward of social responsiblity in all that I do."
Aluminum Project in Saudi Arabia.
This is me preparing for my role in Iraq as part of a HAZMAT Response role.
My quality program experience started as an ISO 9001 Auditor, where I was the certified ISO SME Registor for a chemical manufacturing division seeking ISO certification. For Ma'aden Corporate, I developed OHSAS 18001 framework, and I have a Six Sigma Green Belt Certification.
Electrical Engineering - Federal Manufacturing Complex for DOE
I earned by BS in EE at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. EE specific projects and experiences have included Research and Development, Project Management, Electronic Component Manufacturing, Cable Assembly, Printed Circuity Board Design, Programing, Power System Scheduling, Communications, and Utility.
Early in my career I applied communications and writing skills in the development of scientific publications of my research at Sandia National Laboratories, and I continue to apply skills daily. I have developed policy, on-line training, executive presentation, technical bid packages, and a full blown environmental health and safety programs.
This phone depicts the opportunities I have had to be part of the Leadership Team while working in Saudi Arabia. Tata, CEO, Prince, and Alcoa CEO - KSA, titans of the middle east. When the photographer for a event was delayed I was tapped to take pictures of some of the worlds biggest players as they did their magic. Again, a testament to my abilities and how much leadership put their faith in my abilities to contribute to the team.
Developing an Organization in KSA. When I first arrived in Saudi Arabia we had just moved into a new building and I was asked to sit in the Directors Office until my office could be prepared. In my planning I utilized the window on the 10th floor as a virtual "white board". When the Director come into his office, he smiled and told me "when I hired you I told you I wanted to you write in the clouds" The room erupted in laughter, and for almost a year the Director kept this on his window, saying it was a testament to creativity and getting a job done.

Below I have provided some project background on the Mega Projects I have been affiliated with. My goal is to convey the gravity and size of these projects.
Below are video's of life events. In my Expat career I have been privileged to live, visit, and work in many parts of the world. And, when I am not working I venture out and expand my exposure in an effort to experience cultures, and where I can, end a helping hand. As a leader it is important that one understands the region.
My Most Recent Project 2016
Fluor Wins Contract for New Ma’aden Phosphate Project in Saudi Arabia . Fluor’s scope of work on the +7 billion dollar project at Umm Wu’al project included the following areas:
Below find ESIA associated with my work and the project:
As part of my safety design review I applied API 650 Welded Tanks for Oil Storage & API 2000 Venting Atmospheric & Low-Pressure Storage Tanks, ensuring compliance. In addition, HAZOP, containment, safety showers, and secondary containment was addressed for +50 tanks containing water, flammable, combustible, and corrosive materials.
This is the 3rd mega-project I have affiliated with, since 2007. Other projects in the region have included Ma'den Phosphate 1 and Ma'aden Aluminium.
Professional Milestone - Completion of Aluminium Project
The images above provide a visual representation of the scope of work of one of the mega-projects I worked on.
I developed the EOD survey plan and served as the UXO Incident Commander for a team (KSA Army and Navy) in the clearing of the Ma’aden Aluminium Complex (10kM x 10kM), where after the Kuwait war unexploded ordinance hazards were of concern. The assignment resulted in a significant cost savings to the company, negated the time which would of been required to contract and mobilize an outside vendor, and allowed geo-technical and construction task to begin--- one of the largest consolidated aluminium complex projects in the world. An example of my diversified skill set and commitment to "one team" concept.
Construction Experience Summary
I have construction project experience, from my current roles, and gained while working as a PM and General Contractor, GB-98, in the USA.
Due-diligence for fortune 500 companies---Honeywell, Mitsubishi, Koke, Industry, Bechtel, Alcoa, Worley Parsons, Alcoa, and Ma'aden
Working as the HSE Manager for a high-purity chemical company I was responsible for all HSE aspects of the plants. EPA, OSHA, PSM, DOT, RCRA, State and local requirements for New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas operations. I participated in the commissioning of new plants and conducted due diligence for JVs. The products we manufactured in high volume were:
Over the years I set up a production studio, and continued to apply myself, learning the art of media production. My hobbie grew to a more serious role when when I was asked to document a mega construction project, for historical purpose-the building of the minerals pillar for the kindom, what an opportunity to apply and be part of.
I purchased sound equipment, green screens, lighting kits, cameras, hardware, and software and use it to create projects. I have developed movie scripts, story boards, and designed shot plans, including logos. I hope in the near future to do a short film production, continuing to learn, apply, and grow my passion. In a nut shell, i have my own production studio, and I'm ready for the next project! These days production not as simple as filming and posting. You have to understand formats, bandwidth, and other technical skills you only get from apply hands-on experience,the school of hard knocks! I have spent hours, sometimes days figuring out technical issues.
The pictures below depict a simple project done for Executive Board of Directors, in office interview.
Below find certifications and samples of link to video productions I produced, helping to promote Emergency Mangement and Safety within the company. I filmed, produced, posted, and shoot all the media. My experiences are founded on more than a class and certificate. As the HSE Manager for Chemical Plants I managed chemical spills; While working for Department of Energy I participated on actual Emergency Operations at a National Level. And as a HAZWOPER Trainer, I practiced what I preached while working in Iraq, while in hostile theaters.
Once the video was viewed by Team Members they used the links below to respond to the simulation based on their position within the EOC.
Later the team gathered, where gaps and lessons learned were discussed in preparation for the next drill/exercise.This project is an example of my diversified ability to apply experience and technology. And the photo above is an example of some of the Emergency Response Tools I developed, allowing members to simply click on a box and access Emergency Operations protocol.
The video below was created by me as a Project Public Announcement at the request of a Director. One of the leading causes of death in Saudi Arabia and on our project were the highways. This was part of a campaign to create awareness. Again, all the filming, editing was done by me.
I have a passion for Emergency Services, and have worked as a Fireman, EMT, Fire Training Officer, and Emergency Response Specialist for the US Department of Energy. Here is an example of a solution used to train Incident Command. I developed the story line, the web concept, and all multimedia: Example of Incident Command Solution.
Celebrating delivery of the first Fire Unit, E-1. The beginning of a new fire department for the new industrial complex.
Emergency Management - DOE Emergency Operations Management
While working for the DOE Office of Emergency Management Assessments I conducted assessments to provide critical feedback and objective information on emergency management programs and performance.
My Path To Executive Opportunity - Diversified
My diversified business sector experiences come from working as an Engineer and Manager in the federal manufacturing, petro-chemical, defense, research and development, construction, and industrial sectors.
Web Based Solutions
Below find an example of a web page solution I developed, Emergency SMS Messages to Employees. I developed the page, the web-based forms, and all logo and art work. A hobby of mine, and an example of my creative real-time ability to dream, develop, and implement business solutions. Click on the photo below, it will take you a web page link, explore an example of my work. The purpose of this web page was to communicate to employees the status of the Saudi weather at the project site.
Examples of Document Control Pages Developed
Again, here is an example of a solution I developed and provided to the PMC team to use following the completion of my Process Safety Engineering Assignment in Saudi Arabia.
