The Celebrity Installer Owner - Joe Newkirk

Owner - Joe Newkirk

Joe's love for electronics started at an early age. Growing up he was introduced to electronics through his mother who worked for a large technology company. His father was a housing developer so learning a construction trade was a skill taught as a teenager.


In 1993, Joe went to work for a large electronics retailer and learned audio/video. After a few years of selling audio/video equipment, Joe joined the US Navy where he specialized in electronics. In 2001, Joe left the Navy and went back to the large electronics retailer  where they were launching a Custom Home Theater division.


The construction knowledge Joe brought to the large retailer advanced him to manager of the installation department for the San Diego area. Going back to college in 2002, Joe worked on a school project that eventually led him to starting his own business.


Today, Joe is a licensed General and Electrical Contractor and offers the best in audio/video, home technology, computer networks, and electrical systems.
