Carly and I met while working for another painter. It was a job that was going backwards fast. Carly had been asked to do a side job and asked if i wanted to help, sure I said. When we finished I said to her why are we working for so and so lets do our own thing. Carly had 2 other jobs at the time as well as painting so for the first 4 months she kept her other jobs until we got to busy and she had to give them up. It's been one hell of a ride since then.
I am like others. Needed to make ends meet and came across a painting job. 15 years later the old boss closed up shop for a career change. I hooked up with a couple other painters but it wasn't the same quality work I was used to doing. Blow and go, no sanding patches and so on.
I had a few friends in rock bands and they had a chance to go out on tour with some big name rock bands and asked me if I would be their driver. I jumped at the chance. Our first tour I was gone for 6 months then 5 months. The next tour lasted 2 years. I did this until the econemy fell out and got laid off. I did this for 5 years roughly. I needed work so I got back into painting. I did a little between touring. Shortly after I met Carly.
I also like long walks on the beach, candle light diners and.....
Oh wait wrong place.
I used to go Striped Bass fishing but sold all my gear when they said I needed a fishing license. I used to tag and release all the fish I caught. Never kept any and I caught some 40"+ monsters. Blue Fish was another one I went after. My record Blue is 42", man that was an awesome fight.
I will call myself a paint nerd. I try to learn as much as I can. Remembering in on the other hand is the hard part. I research new products, jobs we have never done I will take a week to find as much info as I can, I call our paint reps regularly plus I spend almost all my free time here.
I have been a professional commercial and residential painter for over 7 years. Growing up in Georgetown MA, Carly has grown a trusted business throughout the North Shore and Southern NH.
She has had a lifelong passion for art and attended White Pines College in Chester NH where she focused much of her studies on art and design.
