I have been an electrician for 40 years working on residential and commercial projects for my family’s electrical company.
I enjoy hunting, fishing, riding my Harley, and driving my beloved ’57 Chevy. I also have 10 acres to explore which is home to five horses and six dogs.
I am inspired by good deeds. As a Boy Scout Leader and Mentor, I take great pride in the Scout Oath. Grandkids, Waylon and Avery are also my inspiration to get out and explore. Avery especially likes to get us up and moving to go see the horses.
I am motivated by my family. We have worked together for 40 years and my Dad started the family business to make sure his sons had a trade to earn a living with. I lost my Dad to brain cancer last year and it prompted my move to Texas. I had been working in California for the family business while the wife was here in Texas. I was where I needed to be to care for my Dad and my wife was here in San Antonio, caring for her Dad.
Mister Sparky was the closest alternative to working for my family business. There was a sense of integrity from the time of application I did not see elsewhere.

I love a good party with my sweetie, family & friends . Brilliant positive people inspire me and my biggest motivation is a good day as well as a positive attitude. I chose Mister Sparky Because it's a great place to work. Good people, excellent teamwork and professionalism. I think about this often: "Before you embark on any path ask the question: Does this path have a heart? If the answer is no, you will know it, and then you must choose another path. The trouble is nobody asks the question; and when a man finally realizes that he has taken a path without a heart, the path is ready to kill him. At that point very few men can stop to deliberate, and leave the path. A path without a heart is never enjoyable. You have to work hard even to take it. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy; it does not make you work at liking it.” ? Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge.
