After graduating from Northwest Technical College – Moorhead for Construction Electricity, I worked for a contractor in the Fargo-Moorhead area were I worked on many large scale warehouse and manufacturing facilities, a large industrial auto body shop, and several grain elevators in the Red River Valley. In 2001 I moved to the Mille Lacs area where I honed my skills as a residential electrician and continued to develop skills on commercial projects. I have a Master Electrician License from MN Dept. of Labor and Industry and Signals and Lighting Certificate from the MN Dept of Transportation.
After I completed the Construction Electricity program at Northwest Technical College- Moorhead, I started my career working for a residential electrical contractor as an apprentice. Later I switched to a larger electrical contractor in Moorhead that specialized in commercial work. There I worked on several new McDonald’s and Applebee’s along with numerous other projects such as mini mall build outs, office buildings, retail stores, restaurants and service work. I carry a Master Electrician License in both North Dakota and Minnesota along with the Signal and Lighting Certificate with the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
