Combined Experience Over 50 Years

Eric, owner and President of Self Made LLC.  Licensed Master Electrician.  Raised as the son of an Ad Man, Eric grew up stuffing envelopes, shooting car ads and entering census data into modeling programs.  He dropped out of college to work in construction in 1991.  Two years later he ended up on an electrical crew in Patterson New York. For Eric, the electrical trade encompassed the kind of productive, satisfying work he had been looking for. Ten years later he had his own company.  Today that company is one of the premier small electrical contracting firms in the valley with four employees, two Masters Licenses and over 50 combined years of electrical experience.

Joel Danforth, key man and licensed Master Electrician.  Joel started in the trade back in 1992. Over time he has worked in pretty much any avenue of the field from residential to heavy industrial.  The majority of his twenty plus years in the trade has centered in commercial and industrial fields, from large factory complexes with parallel backup generator installations to hydro power stations to large printeries. Joel also has extensive experience with motor controls for factory production equipment and large power distribution.  We use Joel a lot for troubleshooting and service calls.  You'll understand why if you ever need him!  Joel either holds or has held licenses in four counties in the Mid Hudson Valley, from Putnam to Dutchess to Ulster and Orange County.

Adrian Glover, Key man.  Raised in the construction trades by his father, we found him to be a man with varied skills when he was hired.  From carpentry skills to motor and engine skills, he was soon being fought over by the installers.  Adrian quickly became a master of basic wiring and troubleshooting, and continues to be invaluable on projects that require creative thinking and mechanical solutions.  Adrian is certified as an installer and programmer for Vantage lighting and building controls systems.  With Adrian on your job, you can be sure it will look good when he is done.

Nathan Davis, general labor, and electrical apprentice.  Nate is hard working, point and shoot kind of kid that loves the trade.  Nate worked with us while still completing his trade schooling education and then joined our team full time.  We love his spirit, his sense of humor, and how he makes hard work look easy.  If John Henry wielded a shovel instead of a hammer, we think he could take some lessons from Nate.

Kendra Self, office manager and wife of Eric for over twenty years.  Kendra grew up in a construction family, the daughter of local builder Dale Diamond owner of New Dimension Construction.  After high school, Kendra worked as the personal secretary for Jackie Barlow, a top seller and office manager for Prudential Serls Real Estate.  Kendra runs our office now, including the accounting and billing departments for Self Made LLC.  If you call 845-868-3337, likely she is the one you will be speaking to.
