A high school friend of mine is an electrician, and he was the one to introduce me to the trade. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with anything that has to do with electrical at residential, commercial, and industrial sites.

What made you want to work for Buildforce?

I met a co-worker at an electrical project in Houston, Texas, and he was the one who talked to me about it. Since then, I have not wanted to join a company directly.

What is something you wish you could learn more about?

I wish I could learn more about industrial electrical projects and about electrical distribution.

What is your proudest Buildforce moment?

My proudest Buildforce moment was when we had the All-Star Event! That was very special to me and I bet it was also for the other Buildforce employees. You guys made us feel like “this is not just a phone application.” 🤯 🤷🏻‍♂️

How do you take your coffee?

It must be a really strong coffee! It’s always in the morning. Now everyone knows why I’m always hyped, starting at 6 a.m.. 😆
