Life doesn't always go as planned, but I somehow ended up right where I belong—as a professional painter and decorator. After a knee injury and ended professional soccer career in 1999, the owner of the soccer team I played with believed in education and trade schools.
He sponsored me and gave me a choice of a three-year painting school or attending five years in a carpentry school. I decided to go with the painting school not knowing a thing about the trade. Because of my curious personality, I clicked with the whole painting curriculum and was anxious to learn more and more about the trade.
In 2002, I became a Professional Painter and Decorator. After working with the best companies in Chicago, I decided to branch out on my own as an independent painter and decorator contractor and started my own company. My goal was to provide the best customer service to many home owners, architects, designers and other construction firms.
