Lead painter May 1993Jun 2006 Dave Keena Painting San Diego , CA I worked for Dave Keena from 93-97 then again from 02-06.
The  jobs primarily included painting new, custom homes.
This work included all phases of the painting process. I painted interiors and exteriors. Ceilings and walls, patio covers, furniture and cabinets, doors, windows and trim. Anything that required a protective or decorative coating was fair game. I used brushes, rollers, masking machines, various hand tools, ladders of all types and sizes.  
I used an airless sprayer extensively on many projects. An airless sprayer is basically a pump that forces material ( paint) through a hose to a gun at high pressure. It is a great tool for covering large areas in short time, but there is also a lot of overspray and therefore requires thorough masking and protection of anything that is not to be painted.
For smaller or more delicate spraying applications, I used HVLP and conventional sprayers. These types of sprayers use air to push material through a nozzle. The output of such sprayers is much lower than an airless, but they require less masking and cleaning.
Journeyman carpenter Aug 1997Sep 2002 Leininger Construction Tahoe city, CA I began working for Jerome leininger in 1997 as a laborer and worked my way up to the position of journeyman carpenter in the 5 years I worked for him.
High School Diploma : Math and Science Jun 1991 Point Loma high San Diego , CA
No degree : Math and Science Mesa college San Diego , Ca
Additional Information
I started painting during my summer breaks in high school. Since then I have had the opportunity to work in a wide range of jobsite situations. From large scale developments to offices, apartments and industrial warehouses and on and on. By 1997, at the age of 24, I had earned my C33 or painting contractors license. Shortly afterward, I moved to Lake Tahoe to begin networking and start my painting business. In the meantime, I took work with Leininger construction and found I had a knack for carpentry and building as well.
I have also worked with the whole spectrum of coatings from your basic flat wall paint to 2 part, marine grade epoxy. From various wood stains and gels to catalyzed furniture finishes and deck coatings.
I am continuously researching new and better products. The ultimate goal being to find the highest durability with the lowest impact on the environment.
I am always prepared to do whatever the day requires, including working extended hours, but with safety being my top priority.
