Steve Miller

The Master Electrician himself, Steve is the president of Mill City Electric. Born and raised in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Out of high school, Steve knew he wanted to be an electrician. Always tinkering with some scrap electric stereo or trying to make his electric cars go faster, it just seemed like a good fit. Plus, he's like 8ft tall. Steve attended St. Cloud Technical College for his degree in Electrical Construction Technology. Shortly after moving to the Mill City, Steve met his future side kicks Brendt and Monte. Steve enjoys the ups and downs of owning a small business, and considers himself damn lucky to have the team that he has by his side. He lives across the pond from his brother in Burnsville with his pooch Lexi.

Brendt Nelson

Brendt's favorite activity is smiling. That's what the sign says. Brendt and Steve worked together as apprentice electricians with a past employer. Years later, they reunited to work together again at Mill City Electric. Brendt lives in Pine City with his family and two dogs. Each day, he braves the daunting task of driving into the big city. Brendt is also a firefighter for the Pine City Fire Department. When he's not making Steve big money, or saving the world from ferocious flames, he enjoys hunting or relaxing in front of the TV with the occasional cold brew.

On a nice day, you might find Monte exploring the back roads on his motorcycle, or tending to his chickens. He currently resides in Ramsey, Minnesota.
