What do you like to do when you aren't at the Health Science Center? (Hobbies or pastimes)
Title: Paint Shop Foreman
Department: Facilities Management
How long have you worked here, and what did you do before joining UNTHSC?
I’ve been working at the Health Science Center for four years. I was a painter in Westchester, N.Y., for 18 years before I moved to Texas in 2001. I’ve been painting all my life.
What are some of the recent projects that you have worked on?
I power washed and painted the sign in front of the PCC, and power washed the concrete outside the library, EAD and RES buildings. I also painted the entire hallway on the eighth floor of the EAD and painted the glaze finish in the Founders’ Board room.
What's the best part about working at the Health Science Center?
Everyone here is nice. Everyone respects me and my position, and I try to show them the same respect.
Everyday is Monday for me! I have two kids in college at UT in Arlington—my son is studying to be an architect and my daughter wants to be a lawyer--so I’m working all the time. Aside from working at the Health Science Center, I paint and do odd jobs on the side. But, I make sure to spend Sundays with my family. We go to church and out to eat.
