Troy is the newest partner and a registered electrical engineer with more than 15 years of experience. He leads the electrical department at EP as well as the engineering efforts for the fitness team. Troy takes great pride in getting into the software and taking a hands-on approach to his design. He loves the creativity involved with lighting design and how it counterbalances the other more rigid aspects of electrical design, such as power distribution.
Troy excels at leading complex projects that require complicated systems and exceptionally close coordination between disciplines. Early in the process he works to fully understand the needs and wants of all parties involved in a project – especially the owner and the architect – and is driven to design systems that meet or exceed those requirements.
Troy learned the value of both hard work and managing a home-life balance at a young age by watching how his dad approached his job as a long-haul trucker. Most weekends were spent side-by-side with him: washing the truck, changing the oil, greasing zerks and polishing chrome wheel rims. (If you’ve never polished truck rims, consider yourself lucky.) On the road most nights, his dad scheduled his routes to make sure he was home when Troy had a basketball or baseball game.
Outside the office, Troy enjoys a home life that is getting busier by the day. He and his wife, Cheri, are parents to twin boys and a younger daughter. Nights are quickly filling up with basketball, baseball, football, soccer, dance, gymnastics, swimming … well you get the idea. On free nights, Troy enjoys immersing himself in a good video game, hitting a live music concert with friends or sinking into the couch with a good movie. As the kids get older, he and Cheri are hoping to renew their passion for travel and pass that love onto their children.
