I started out my working career as an apprentice electrician with Kentz working on various projects across the world, as a qualified electrician I worked with Kentz and Mercury Engineering as a Supervisor and later with Cheevers Smart Solutions as a Project Manager, all the time studying at night time in order to further my career. I eventually joined FAS as an Electrical Instructor training apprentice electricians, while at FAS I completed a Higher Certificate in Training and Further Education and later when at WIT completed a BSc(H) in Electrical Technology.
