Default Hi from Vancouver BC

I've been a carpenter for around seven years now. I picked up drywall finishing about four years ago and I have recently started painting a lot more of my work. I'm just coming around the learning curve and am really starting to like painting. I am pretty new so I will spare you all and not tell you everything I think I know about painting. I go by carpentaper over at drywalltalk in case any of you are lurkers over there.
I just went out on my own a few month's ago and have been really busy. I haven't had a short day or week yet(knock on wood).

I've seen your vehicle around. I grew up in Dunbar. I usually see it parked on Dunbar around 24th I think.
I noticed there seems to be quite a few regulars from BC. More than at drywalltalk.

Yep, I have a house near 23rd and Dunbar. You probably saw my trailer on Dunbar. IT has my older style logo on it. My truck is usually parked around the side and is updated with my new logos since rebranding!
