What do you like most about your job?

I really enjoy the painting industry and seeing the transformations we do by rejuvenating structures and properties from commercial to residential. 

What is your favorite job throughout your lifetime?

The job that left the biggest impression was the Hoan Bridge project I worked on in Wisconsin. 

It was a 2 year project that encomposed the painting and scaffolding of the structure that contained lead based paint that needed to be removed and recoated without disturbing the landscape along the lakefront

What makes you happy?

A job well done by the team, when a team effort was put in.  

What do you like to do for fun, as a hobby, or special interest?

I like to stay active and get outdoors when time permits to disconnect from technology.

Tell us something interesting  or extrodinary about yourself.

During the Hoan bridge project a girl tried to take her life by jumping off the bridge. 

We were able to save her life and pull her out of the water because we had all of our safty gear in place and trained men in the area. A very humbling day for me. 

Tell us something that everyone doesn't already know about you.

 I like to cook and was on a BBQ Team for  years.
