I was trained to be San Diego's Electrician. Back in 1998, I worked for a small mom and pop shop for 2yrs, Andrew Electric.
Being the only apprentice of three great journeyman electricians was
great. I was exposed to alot and was assigned heavy tasks right from the
get go. I got to work directly under them, I learned fast and learned
great electrical habits, quality work. I was involved in doing
alot of the TI's (big office rooms) over by the Pyramid in Miramar and
the Police Acadamy building in Mira Mesa. Also worked on parking
structures in down town San Diego. We did a few gas stations from the
ground - up and a couple projects in Camp Pendleton. Also a few custom
Then I went to work for a big company for 5yrs, Gould Electric. I
came in as the highest paid apprentice because I was worth
it....eventually became lead apprentice. Working for Gould was great, I
gained alot of experience with commercial electric, it is here where I
can credit my electrical expertise, it was very interesting to
do all the prep work, wiring, finish and test work. All from start to
finish. I was involved with alot of the additions to Viejas Casino, and
the entire AC system on the roof. Also some additions at Barona Casino,
and the entire Pro Shop for the Barona Golf Course. And the ten story
high rise hotel at Pala Casino. I was involved in alot of the new
construction & school remodels in La Mesa Elementary / SDSU Science
Building (new construction five stories) / Oceanside High School
(remodel & new construction, three story science
building) / Temecula Elementary (new construction) / Del Mar Elementary.
Also the building addition for the Navy Seals training camp in Coronado
After all this went to work for another small shop Belco Electric,
for 2 yrs I was involved in running entire jobs under the direction of
the owner, great electrician. We did alot of fire restoration jobs, most
of the time complete rewires. A bit of industrial work. And allot of
service upgrades and troubleshooting.
Then I teamed up with another small shop George A Bowlby Electric, for
2 yrs, I also got to work directly with the owner, Great old school
Electrician, learned allot of tricks of the trade along with some new
techniques and mastered my troubleshooting skills. We did alot of new
custom homes through out Crest / Harbison Canyon / and Alpine, all areas
that were affected by the October fires of 2003. Also wired custom
homes in Borrego Dessert.
All This brings me to were I'm at now! Working for these last two
companies really refined me as a great electrician. I polished my
Electrical Expertise, refined the Quality of my Electrical Work, and
came to Appreciate the customer as I also worked face to face with
them, constantly working to Deliver Satisfying Results. Brilliant
Electric was established in 2008.
