IAN BOWERS

Savvy Technician

Ian started complex commercial system installations at age 17. After trying his hand at residential installations, Ian's skills expanded into an expertise of "tough jobs; made simple" and maneuvering wiring. Able to fit under sub-floors and up into condo ceilings, Ian has installed wire in "places people shouldn't be able to go". When Ian is not being "tech savvy", you may find him getting exercise on his skateboard or at the park with his dog, Ruby. In the rare occasion of rain in the Sunshine State, Ian also loves playing video games and the guitar.
