Bay Area Electric

Pro Bono

       I opened Bay Area Electric in 1988.  
       In college, I was the apartment manager of a sixteen unit building.  I did basic repairs and painting.
       In graduate school, I worked at the Elmwood Correctional Facility (Santa Clara County Jail) in charge of the hobby shop and sports programs.
       In the United States Army, I was trained in cryptography.
       As a United States Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines, I became impressed by the ingenuity of the carpenters, electrician and plumbers.  Their ingenuity guided me into the construction industry.
       Upon my return to the United States, and after a brief sojourn into the world of art, I decided that becoming a contractor was my calling.
       I worked for a General Contractor as a laborer/carpenter.  We did kitchen and bath remodels.
       I learned roofing and dry rot repair.
       Later, I was employed by an electrical contractor.  We did both residential and commercial work.
        I completed the College of San Mateo's Building Inspection Technology Program in 1986, and have taught the National Electrical Code at the ABC Trade School and the College of San Mateo.
