I bought the Central Fort Bend CertaPro Painters in February 2019. Before this it was owned by Gary Steinhaus who had been serving the Fort Bend community for about 8 years. At the same time I bought the Pearland CertasPro Painters. At that time, I was the sole employee, but have now built the business to include Karen my trusted Office Associate; Adam, a Residential Sales Associate; Tracey, a Commercial Sales Associate and Joe, an Operations and Production Manager. We typically have between 15-21 painters working for us on any given day.

Our operating area Residentially now covers Sugar Land, Richmond, Rosenberg, Needville, Rosharon, Pearland, Manvel, Friendswood, Alvin,  and down to Lake Jackson and Freeport. Commercially we are able to service any area in Greater Houston and beyond.

Before this I lived in London, England and was employed as a Scotland Yard Detective Sergeant. In my 23-year career as a Detective I was instrumental in setting up a gangs unit whose role was to identify and dismantle the most harmful gangs in London, as well as being specifically selected to work directly with the Senior Management Team on a number of different projects.

I am committed to running my business with honesty, integrity and professionalism. This is shown in the customer surveys that we receive being well above the company 68% average as our company consistently receives 90% plus ratings.
Each year our CertaPro Painters business has had continued growth starting at $500,000 and in 2019 we completed over $2 million dollars in painting.
On a personal note, I am married to Amanda who has lived in Texas for over 30 years. I have two children. My daughter is 23 and has just returned from spending time traveling. My son is 19 and in his first career. I am a lover of all sports and am a Houston Texans season ticket holder and I enjoy attending basketball, baseball and soccer games in Houston. The last member of our family is “Dixie”, a Labrador mix that we adopted after Hurricane Harvey.

We look forward to serving you.
