Michael has over 20 years of experience in the contracting industry which began when he was age 16 starting out as a painting apprentice on the weekends and summer holidays. He then went to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK where he double majored in the school of Art Design and Music. During college he started his own painting business which he eventually sold because of his love for horses. For 7 years he managed a 300 acre horse farm in Monkton, MD which involved nothing but project management in every aspect while living on the property, and feeding his need for horses in his life. After the realization that he could no longer support his growing family managing the farm, he went back to what he knew best. Painting! He worked for almost one year as a painting sales rep then was promoted to Regional Manager for Perfect Painters & More. Within 6 months of that promotion he was again promoted to Production Manager for Perfect Painters & More, which he is so proud of.
