I usually tell people to look around right where they’re standing and notice all of the devices within a building that require power to function. I design the electrical infrastructure that makes those devices function properly while ensuring the safety of everyone utilizing those devices.
In high school, I was on the fence between architecture and engineering as my career choice. However, when I took physics in my senior year, I became fascinated with the laws of electromagnetism and electricity. Super nerdy, I know. A career in this industry was a perfect match for me.
I like to describe Ghafari as having a “work hard, play hard” attitude. Ghafari has a very social atmosphere with many opportunities to enjoy the company of your colleagues. On the other hand, Ghafari consists of hard-working, dedicated employees who understand that the social aspects of the workplace are a reward for the demanding work we all put in.
Ghafari has given me many opportunities to travel, and I have made the most of those opportunities. My most exciting trip was spending three months working in India. It was an enlightening experience, and I would definitely take a trip back for a personal vacation.
Ask questions, never assume.
I enjoy staying active in the summer - running, golfing, Kan-Jamming. If you don’t know what Kan-Jam is, you should look it up, it’s amazing. I’m also trying to whittle down my endless list of “Chicago restaurants that I want to try”. In the winter, I spend my free time thinking about summer.
