Meet your licensed electrician, Darren

Over 40 years of industry experience

People buy from people and I enjoy provided a personal, human, experience every time I come into contact with someone.

I started in the industry installing security alarms and CCTV camera systems 25 years ago in London. I worked on thousands of sites servicing alarm electrical systems for large building companies, schools & other locations.

When I arrived in Australia I wasn’t allowed to apply for a security licence as I was not a citizen at the time so I decided get my TAFE qualifications and retrain as an electrician which complimented my electrical assistant work in London. I have been working as an electrician in Sydney since 2005.

For just over 40 years I have been involved in all types of electrical installations, upgrades, emergency repairs and set ups. I’ve worked for companies like;

CABACC – installing fibre optic cabling across the UK, Spain, Germany and France
Electroboard – Installing audio visual equipment (sound systems, video conferencing, TV installs) in schools, prisons and defence sites
KLM electrical – Installing power and data to offices around the Sydney CBD (PWC, Commonwealth bank, Westpac Bank ect)

I love being an electrician because...

I believe everyone should love what they do, fortunately I am one of those people. I love being an electrician in Sydney where I can be on different job sites each day, solving different problems, working on different projects and meeting new people every day

I love solving electrical problems or work through ideas people have thought of, to help them create a better electrical solution vs what they thought was possible. 

I get a kick out of seeing happy, smiling faces. 

I am a closet technology & gadget nerd, I love working with things that can make our everyday lives much easier or can reduce our impact on the environment with low energy or sustainable products.

As an electrician I get to test and use new technology when it first arrives. These days it is a fantastic time for technology as things like home automation, AI, connected systems and smartphones all become easier to use together & change how we live our lives or save money doing simple tasks.

If I wasn’t an electrician I would either be;

– a carpenter so I could create & see what I have built out of a lovely material like timber.

– or maybe a park ranger patrolling the national parks, being outdoors all day.

What things do I always get asked?

I wish I was getting a dollar for everytime I get asked these things as an electrician in Sydney

  • Electric vehicles – what is the largest charger we can install or need to install for my electric car?
  • Lighting – how do I stop my lights from flickering when using my dimmer?
  • Medical – do I need to have a certain area set up as a Body Protected Area?
