While finishing his final year of college for Electrical Engineering at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Robert worked full time for Rich Bosela (his step-dad) learning the language of lighting. Upon graduation, Robert committed to a 2 year contract before exploring other career options in design and electrical engineering. After the two years were up, the opportunity to partner and grow the company presented itself.
Robert partnered with Rich in 2015, and started to learn how to run a company. Every day presents new challenges, but Robert has become passionate about serving customers. Ask Robert about him and his wife's new entrepreneurial startup in 2021!

As passionate as he is about his work, Joe is even more passionate about his family!
