Hello everyone, I live in Nashville TN, I am just getting into the electrician field now, I am 31 will be 32 in Aug, but I have always loved working with my hands and fixing things. That drew me working on wiring and I love wiring things together. It feels amazing when you can wire up things and they actually work!

So I decided that I want to make a career out of it and become an electrician. I have worked alongside a few over the years and always thought it would be a good career. I held back because I didn't want to endure anymore student loan debt.

After doing some research online and advice from a fellow electrician, I found out that I can do an apprenticeship program and I love that. I just applied at the NEJATC to become an inside wireman. I took a tour of the school the other day and was really impressed by everything they will teach me there. I am looking forward to it and hoping that this career will be a good fit for me.

Background about myself, I joined the Fire Dept. at the age of 19 and loved it, enlisted in the Army in 2003 when Bush declared war on Iraq, served 3.5 yrs with the 101st Airborne Sniper Platoon HHC 2/327 Inf Reg. but damage to my lower spine prevented me from being able to continue that profession, so I got out and started going to school, I became certified as a Suzuki, and Yamaha mechanic, then went to an Art Institute to get my BA in Photography, and shortly after that I got my Certification as a personal trainer. I guess you could say I love learning new things for personal knowledge.

Deep down though it is because I don't like to pay for something that I can learn myself. Becoming an Electrician is different though, I would actually like to be out there wiring up new buildings and helping people fix or add things to their homes. I always liked the construction enviroment and but due to my back injury I am really limited on some of the things I can do in the construction field. I also love working with electricity and thats why i am hoping this will be a great career for me.
