“Keep a positive attitude”

I am Bay Area born and raised and have lived here all my life. I love that I get to be part of a company that works on so many projects in the place I call home. Working on local project and watching them come to life is incredibly rewarding. 

The best part of being an Engineer is problem solving and all the technical details that come with it. Designing complicated electrical systems and then working with the design team and the contractors to implement them is exciting!

There is a 39-story high rise in San Francisco, named Fifteen Fifty located at 1550 Mission Street. It’s been my favorite project to date. Seeing the completed building occupy its space in the San Francisco skyline and knowing I was a part of that design is unreal.

I started at The Engineering Enterprise right after graduating from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. It’s been such a great experience being a part of this company. The knowledge I have gained related to the design of power and lighting systems has been extraordinary and I enjoy being able to apply that understanding to my projects on a daily basis.
