Various aspects of Hands-On Residential, Commercial and Industrial electrical projects in the California Silicon Valley area.
I was encouraged to enter the electrical trade by my father and I am grateful for it. Although my dream was and still is to be a pilot, I will always cherish the trade that was passed on to me from my father.
He was the greatest electrician I have ever known - stubborn, but great.

Thanks Dad, I will never forget the times we had together - lots of hard work and good fun too!
