Default Hello all

Hello all. I've been lurking here for a while enjoying the wealth of information and interesting personalities this forum provides.


I have painted professionally in Fairfield county for 8 years working with Cicero painting out of Darien and running my own business. Moved to the “Quiet Corner” of Connecticut and worked for McCabe painting in Glastonbury for 5 years.

I Pushed a ton of Satin Impervo trim in my day. I also worked on my share of problem paint jobs like peeling calcimine walls and ceilings. I was responsible for the majority of wall and ceiling repairs for Cicero painting; all pretty much high end stuff. For McCabe Painting I did a lot of exteriors were I spent endless days re-glazing and painting 12 over 12 windows and front doors/entrance areas, besides the required body and trim work.


Took a Ten year break and worked developing software for Insurance companies (COBOL). It was all that oil-base primer and finish that knocked me out of the business, but hey.. I love to paint. Never stopped painting on the side and know I am painting every day again. Greetings everyone.
