I have been very blessed in my life, I married my best friend Ricia Brown. Rica and I have a son and a daughter. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America as a teen and am very actively involved in the Boy Scouts with my son.
I have been in Oregon for over 33 years and attended Churchill High and Lane Community College where I attained an associate’s degree in applied science.
I am also a licensed Journeyman and General Supervising Electrician, with 20 years of experience as an electrician, supervising electrician, estimator and project manager. I have attended Accubid electronic estimating courses and have become proficient at electronic estimating, database management, and bidding techniques.
I have studied electrical installations and National Electrical code extensively and have taught for the Mid Oregon Independent Electrical Contractors association apprenticeship program for 2 years. I also developed and managed electrical training classes for local home improvement stores to increase the knowledge base of their electrical sales personnel. I have spent the past 6 years working as a project manager, managed direct sales to clients, and supervised the workload of electrical crews on multiple projects at the same time.
I am an experienced computer user with emphasis on Microsoft Office and Accubid electrical estimating products. I have been a foreman on many large projects and am an experienced cost control manager.
