TJ joined the Construction Leadership Council in 2018 to learn more from other leaders and expand his knowledge of construction. TJ enjoys working as an electrician especially knowing that his work is just as important as other trades and the sense of achievement he gets when seeing the final product such as light or a piece of equipment being energized. His words of wisdom for younger generations is that in construction there is always a purpose or reason to what you are building. Take pride and passion in the work you do. Always live and learn to be better and have the motivation to grow and strengthen your knowledge in a trade. Never settle for the minimum and don’t expect to start at the maximum.
