I started my career as a commercial/industrial electrician. My professional experience ranges from installing standard receptacles and light fixtures to very complex industrial control and power systems. At the age of 30 I decided to take the steps toward a long-term goal I had been thinking about for years. I left the trade for a 9-5 office job and started going to school at night. After 3 years I completed my A.A. degree at Hillsborough Community College. Now at 33 years old, I am a junior in the University of South Florida College of Electrical Engineering. On a more personal note, I am married to the love of my life, going on 9 years. My wife and I have two amazing children, a 6 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. We like to spend our spare time, what little we have, hanging out at the beach or on the water fishing.
