What do you enjoy most about your profession?
Bringing in new people to train in the proper methods to perform our trade and educate them on how to be high-quality professionals who know how to work safely, efficiently and productively. I am proud that we do this extremely well.
How did you get started in your career?
My grandfather was an electrician, my dad was an electrician, and my dad helped me get my first job in the trade at a shipyard in San Diego as an electrical trainee, wiring commercial tankers.
What's the best piece of advice you have ever received?
Be honest and have integrity in everything you do. Treat others like you want to be treated. Don't be any different in how you run your business than how you run your personal life. Pay your bills and don't ever short-change anyone.
Do you have a personal mantra?
If you can't do it right and safely, let someone do it who can.
What is your favorite city to visit, and why?
Lake Havasu City, AZ. We have been going there every summer and many winters since the early 1970s. Love boating, water, and the kids have been going there since they were infants. Now my grandkids all come and we love spending time together there.
