Through the years I would pick up painting projects since I enjoyed it while I was occupied with other work. It was finally in 2006 after completing my first government stint, that I painted my first house on self-employed basis, in Orlando, FL. And that led to three other houses I painted in the Orlando area that year including a relative’s house. Not only did I paint the exterior in the two-tone tan and brown, I did my first interior faux finishing on two different walls: Venetian pigmented plastic on the living room-dining room wall rising up to the cathedral ceiling, and sponged red on top of a creamy pink on a kitchen wall:

Then the first week of 2007, I moved up to High Springs to work on the natural and cultural resources at O’Leno State Park, River Rise Preserve, and Dudley Farm. (See Preservation-Historic for a couple highlights from that year.)

Then, after moving to Tallahassee, in 2008 I picked up a P/T job as maintenance worker for a 2-apartment building community run by a non-profit, which included regular painting of units (a church would send volunteers there regularly too). And I painted the exterior wood panels of the 2-story two apartment buildings and metal handrails:

And then just after moving back to Central FL in 2013, I had a house in Leesburg I painted. The following year I bought an old mobile home which needed painting some interior rooms  and I painted the metal fascia around on the exterior.

Then, one month after moving to Gainesville August 2017, I established my A USA PPP business. I specifically moved up to Gainesville to take the Historic Preservation course at UF. But I really wanted to get to working too.


Thank you to all my Gainesville, FL customers and referring me to your family, friends, and co-workers.

In these three years, I have over 25 houses painted in Gainesville area, one in Newberry, three in Lake City, two in Jacksonville, and three in Leesburg.

I obtained the LLC to A USA PPP LLC May 2019.
