He came to California when he was 24 where his first job was to repair the power plant that electrified the trolley cars that traveled up and down Euclid Avenue. Several years later he would return to the power plant and help to electrify the Model Colony. He would begin to developed household appliances to use the excess electricity produced by the plant. He developed such items as heaters, stoves and coffee makers. But he is best know for creating the first electric iron that heated to the tip- the hot point iron.
