About Totally Amped
Under the expert leadership of Founder and Director Sean Hopgood, Totally Amped is an electrical contracting company that carries out a full range of residential and commercial electric works, servicing homes and businesses throughout Torquay and the surrounding areas.
After completing his electrical apprenticeship, Sean soon had a vision of starting his own distinct type of electrical service.
Sean saw a gap in the market and realised there were a number of elements lacking in the existing local offerings at that time. These included straightforward and honest advice, a focus on service, reliability, being contactable at all times, and working to the ethos of ‘do it once, and do it right.’
That was fifteen years ago and, since then, the company has grown into one of the largest and most trusted in the region. Because the range of potential problems Totally Amped gets asked to solve is incredibly broad, it was vital for Sean to assemble a cohort of fully-qualified electricians with diverse skills, knowledge and experience. The team that exists today has exactly that, meaning no matter how obscure the project, piece of equipment or fault, Totally Amped have the expertise to handle it, quickly and effectively.
Residential, Commercial & Industrial Electrical
Since its formation, Totally Amped has proudly built a reputation locally as the go-to for all electrical needs across residential, commercial and industrial projects.
And it’s not just clients who love working with Totally Amped. Thanks to the strong industry relationships the team has developed over the past decade-and-a-half, we are able to quickly and affordably source the tools and parts necessary to complete all jobs to the highest standard.
Meet the Team
Director & A Grade Electrician
The brains behind the business, Sean’s well recognised wherever he goes; feel free to chat to him about your non-functioning power point next time you see him having brunch at the local! The move to beachside Torquay from his childhood home in South Aus was a natural one for Sean, as was becoming an electrician, having now spent 20 years in the field. Sean enjoys managing a team of equally dedicated electricians and is often found on the job site belting out his favourite cheesy song, Lamb Chop – the song that never ends…give him the thumbs up next time you hear him, encouragements good for the soul.
Jack (Jacky Boy)
Supervisor & A Grade Electrician
A Geelong local and loving it, Jack is our Supervisor Extraordinaire and has 8 years of Electrical experience tucked into his toolbelt. Specialising in Commercial and Domestic projects, Jack keeps abreast of all new technology and enjoys sharing this knowledge with clients. Likening himself to a Carrot, (tall, skinny and with slightly unpredictable hair), Jack stands out amongst the other veggies in the patch, so look out for him on your next job site!
A Grade Electrician
With over 15 years experience in the electrical trade, Dan is an expert in all things maintenance – no problem ever beats this great man! Growing up in England, Dan made the change to the sunny side and now resides on the Bellarine Peninsula with his growing family. If given the chance for a celebrity to cook him dinner, Dan would choose Stephen Fry as he would provide a factually interesting conversation as well as being comical – so long as he doesn’t burn the snags!
A Grade Electrician
Having mastered all areas of electrical work over the past 16 years, Drew has turned his expertise to quality installations in new and custom homes. Growing up in Geelong, he still calls this fine region home and now enjoys raising a family here. Always rocking a smile, Drew has a hidden talent of being able to wriggle his right ear; but don’t make him laugh because then it won’t move!
A Grade Electrician
Originally from Melbourne, we’re thankful Kris headed west & became an integral part of the Totally Amped team. With 11 years experience in both Domestic and Commercial electrical construction, Kris’ knowledge is second to none. He saves his brains for work because he’s been known to do weird things like eat hot chips with icecream or heading out for a swim on a negative degree day in the rain!
Specialising in both Industrial and Domestic Electrical fields, Lee is a distinctive member of our team with his gentle nature and jolly accent, originating from Manchester in the UK. With 13 years experience in the industry, Lee now calls the Surf Coast region home. Having a passion for bikes, if Lee was to have an imaginary friend it would be Mark Marquez in the hope some of his bike skills may rub off; but for now he’ll stick to the Totally Amped ute, so give him a honk next time you see him in your neighbourhood!
The veteran of our Apprentices, Liam is currently in his 3rd year and is a proactive, friendly team member who is always willing to roll up the sleeves to do any job that’s not necessarily glamourous! Growing up in Mount Gambier, Liam hopped the border and now happily calls the Bellarine Peninsula home. While always wide awake and on alert on the job site, the same can’t be said for Liam on the weekends – being known to fall asleep in the plane on the climb to height ready for a skydiving mission!
Having grown up in Torquay and still residing here, Jarrod is keen to learn and is absorbing the electrical world like a sponge. A dedicated apprentice, he is currently in his second year and enjoys the varied electrical work Totally Amped undertake. These days Jarrod keeps clear of pocket knives, having closed one over his fingers when wood carving in the bush in his younger years – he now carries a bladeless knife in his toolbelt for stripping back those electrical wires.
Bright eyed and bushy tailed, Luke is our newest apprentice, kicking off the school shoes and going straight to the work boots! Growing up on the Surf Coast and now residing in the Geelong region, Luke enjoys the fast paced work environment at Totally Amped and appreciates the mentoring he receives from his fellow team members. At morning tea and lunch you’ll be sure to find a meat pie and sauce in Luke’s hand, a food he says he could eat for the rest of his life as it’s the greatest food in Aus!
