I am a retired member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) after 46 years of service. My last employer was the Golden Gate Bridge Highway & Transportation District in San Francisco, CA.

Please join me while I share my photography, tell some stories and spread a little insight into my life as an electrician who stumbled upon the best job of his life.

    Hi Allan!

    My name is Jane and I wanted to ask if it might be possible to use a photo of the bridge you took as part of a cartoonified image for the inside cover of a rap music EP. I’m a SF native along with the other emcee on the project, and the photo you took woukd be spectacular. I can show you the cartoonified image as well.

    Our music is not crass, it’s conscious hip hop and the album is about having a good work ethic.

    I’m not sure how to get in touch via email so I’ll leave mine here and I hope to hear from you as it would be amazing to be able to use the cartoon collage I made with your incredible photo.

    You’ve deactivated your FB account? There are times when I’ve considered doing the same! Hope to still find you wandering here around these parts. 🙂
