Hello, I have been doing electrical work for over 20 years.  The most enjoyable part of my job has always been to teach an apprecntice who is eager to learn. I finally found the formula to do this on video just as well as if I were standing right next to you.  

When I'm not using tools, I like to cycle, play water sports, and practice tai chii.  I like to travel and learn languages also.
