How did you start working with SOLV? It was by chance. At the time I was under the Senior Electrical Super in Sacramento. The Kaiser portfolio came to both of us. He said he didn’t want to do solar because it was a fad. I ended up with it and here I am today.

What motivates you in your work? The people I work with motivate me every single day. I love watching people grow and being able to help get them where they want to be. I also enjoy that every day is not the same. There are numerous opportunities to be inventive and innovative. 

What are some new and exciting things happening for SOLV in 2017? Well, we will be in our new 7,000 SF facility, complete with a NERC Medium Impact 24/7/365 Operations Center.

What are your favorite things to do on weekends? Hanging out with my wife, building things around the house and working on restoring my ’65 Mustang.

If you could meet anyone in the world for a cup of coffee, who would you choose? Zig Ziglar, he is a powerful motivation speaker who did not compromise his beliefs.
