John Shook has over 50 years of electrical experience and is also a certified safety expert. He spent 22 years working at Disneyland, most of that time in charge of all maintenance. After retiring from Disneyland, he worked several years for the State of California as an amusement ride inspector, checking the safety of rides all over California.
In 2005 John left the State and went on his own as a private inspector for amusement rides in California, Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii and even in Indonesia. At the same time he ran his own electrical contracting company, Roseville Rocklin Electric, in Roseville, California doing electrical contracting for residential, industrial and commercial customers. In 2014 he had to give up the amusement ride inspections due to a leg injury.
John recently sold the electrical contracting business with over 2,800 clients. John now wants to pass on some of his knowledge to younger electricians in the hope he can help them out and prevent problems for companies or homeowners in the future.
