What I am currently doing? I am currently a Traveling Wind Technician for Gemini Energy Services.

What is your favorite thing about your job? Overtime (:

What is your favorite memory from attending our program? The teachers. Always had good stories that had plenty of teaching moments within them.

Do you have any advice for students who are about to start our program? Prepare to climb towers with no assist. Been free climbing G90 Gamesa turbines that are 100meters for three months now and the weather is in the high 80’s with constant humidity. During the winter prepare to not feel your face and hands. Have been in Illinois since the start of 2019 and we reached down to -48. Was definitely not prepared for that. Also just prepare to be aware of your surroundings. Safety is key.
