I started in the painting industry in 1996. As a sophomore at College I was approached by a student painting company to run a franchise in my hometown. I accepted the challenge. For 4-5 months out of the year I was running my own business and gaining a tremendous amount of experience. I continued running the franchise until I graduated in 1998.

Equipped with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics I decided to stay in the painting industry and start my own company. The company was a success. Two years later I was visiting St. Louis with some friends and ended up meeting my future wife. After a short engagement we married and ended up moving to Phoenix, AZ. There I started a company called The Painting Company. I had a colleague from college join me and we formed a partnership. The Painting Company was a huge success from 2000-2005. In 2005, at the height of the real estate boom, my wife and I decided to sell our home and my partner in Phoenix agreed to buy me out of the business. We had our sights set on Austin, TX and made the move in late 2005.

Once I arrived I filed papers and started Texas Painting Company. We have served the Austin community for 9 years and enjoyed every moment of it. Austin is a great city with a diverse collection of neighborhoods. It has been a pleasure beautifying and protecting several homes and businesses throughout this great city.
