Skyline Electric


I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah where I was heavily involved in sports, for which I have always had a deep passion. I played competitively in football, basketball, baseball, and soccer from a young age through high school. When the opportunity presented itself 15 years ago, our family moved to and instantly fell in love with Southern Utah. There is a feeling here that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
