Would my background make me a good fit for Infra PE?

About to be a second-year analyst at a top energy group in Houston (EVR / JEFF / TPH) and was thinking through what I should be targeting in PE this on-cycle (didn't participate in on-cycle last year) and speaking to the HHs about.

Most of the traditional PE shops in Houston aren't really suitable from a long-term perspective since they haven't raised capital in forever now and are in sell-off / asset-management mode.

Spent the first year working in upstream (70%) and midstream infra (30%) and got top-bucket reviews with a couple of deals closed from the O&G M&A frenzy the past year. Could probably spin my midstream exp., and long-dated upstream asset modeling exp. into an interest in infra PE.

Would want to target MF / UMM Infra groups but am wondering if the HHs will think I am crazy and I just won't get any traction?

Also, do the infra groups go on-cycle with NYC or do some of them go alongside the energy on-cycle which takes place November - January?
