I started in the construction field at the age of 15, helping my step-father hang gutters throughout the summers and weekends. As his company grew, he became dedicated to roofing and my step-father believed it was too dangerous for me.

I then found a painting job at a facilities management company, which specialized in meticulous commercial painting for a large hedge fund in Fairfield County. After 5+ years of painting during off-hours (5:00 pm – 1:00 am and weekends), I realized that I needed to find a better work-life balance.

Soon after taking many classes at Housatonic Community College, I transferred to the University of Connecticut and pursued a degree in Business Data Analytics. To pay my way through school, I was constantly doing painting side jobs for family and friends.

Post-graduation, I landed an office job with a great starting salary and many benefits. This "dream" job was not what I once thought it was. After many mornings dreading the commute and spending afternoons counting down the minutes to 5:00 pm, I took the leap of faith. With guidance from my business minded Step-Father and painting skills from my previous employer, I started my very own painting company.

Elite Finishing

Elite Finishing started with my two close friends Todd Daneault Paul Ezepchick and me driving around in a small 1994 Chevy Astro Van. There were many times the van would not start and we scrambled to figure a way to get our supplies to the job site. We now have 5 full-sized trucks on the road and hundreds of happy, repeat customers.

 

If you were to ask anybody that knows me personally, they would be sure to bring up how Elite Finishing is my pride and joy. From the initial estimate to the final walk-through, let us brighten your home with our pride in painting that allows us to have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and a 7 Year Labor and Material Warranty!
