I really enjoy working with clients to bring their homes up to date with current technologies such as LED Lighting and Smart Home controls.  The best part of working for myself is helping my clients upgrade their homes and seeing how happy they are when the project is completed.   Knowing that I have made their home safer and more functional for their  family is the greatest reward.
