Bio
I'm married and have four kids - two and two. I have a bachelor's degree in political science but opportunities and interest as a career are limited so I fell back on the family business which is actually swimming pools but I've morphed into a union wallcoverer/painter. But I still do pools, and always will. Outside of that well, I'll have to meet ya...

More About Me
Any and all sports, golf (if time and money), history (esp. ancient), I have four kids...you think I have more hobbies???
Work Experience:
Originally a swimming pool installer and service man in a family business for several years (after college) I kept busy doing painting (skill acquired in college) and wallcovering during the winter months. After latching on to a non-union commercial painting shop in 1998 I spent almost two years there before going back to the swimming pool business for two years. Then I heard of a former boss of mine in the non-union painting shop go union and well...the rest is history.

Wallcoverer/painter

Category: Skilled Trade / Crafts
Description
I've hung wallpaperand painted for about ten years or so and the last three virtually full time. I am in the IUPAT D.C. #35 (painters and tapers union) and a member for six+ years. I've worked for some of the biggest of hotels but can do your bathroom as well. Fabrics or vinyls, random or match patterns, I am efficient and very neat and can give references to reputable home owners and business people. I'll paint whole apartments/houses (mainly interior) or paint one room. I post this ad to keep work going during slow times (like now!) but will moonlight or accomodate your schedule as best I can.
Relevant Education / Credentials
I have a certificate from the IUPAT for completing the appenticeship program and simply have worked with some of the most experinced and reputable people in the industry.
Years Experience: 10

swimming pool service/installer

Category: Skilled Trade / Crafts
Description
This is actually my best skill but I only put this second because I do wallcovering and painting full time and pools part time, i.e. when I'm working for the union full time. Otherwise I hustle as much swimming pool work as I can handle (with help). I have been doing pools since I have been able to work with my father and brother. I do liner pools primarily but I service all types. I stick to installing above grounds but refer ingrounds to my brother (Sunbrite Pools Inc. of Smithfield, R.I.). I do openings, closings, spring and in-season cleanings, install vinyl liners (Vyn-All dealer) for inground and aboveground pools. I give free advice and back up my work (as I believe integrity is sometimes hard to find in this industry).
Relevant Education / Credentials
Lifetime of experince. I've been to seminars but there are no official schools for this. I learned from a hard worker (my dad) and a real eagle-eye (my brother) who did many things for customers they wouldn't probably fully appreciate.
