We sat down with Darrell for a quick (virtual) interview.
How did you get into this profession?
“I got a job as an electrician’s helper when I was a teenager. I was fascinated by the work they As time went on, I continued to train and eventually became a certified electrician. In 2016. I started my own business.”
Being an electrician, Darrell works directly with many people. We asked him what’s the most unusual situation that ever happened on the job.
“I was called to a house to do some electrical work. When I entered and looked around, I noted a large number of animals including dogs, cats, and chickens.”
