Bill started his painting career in Ohio, and then went to Texas where he painted several high schools, a church, and army barracks at Fort Hood. He moved to Seattle in 1977 and met his wife, with whom he had 3 children. He continued work as a painter, and even owned a small painting company. In 1980 he decided to go a different route and opened a motorcycle shop (The Cycle Shed), building custom choppers until a bad accident ended that in 1984. After recovering, he returned to the painting industry as a foreman for a company in Seattle. From there he went to the Career Institute of Construction Estimating to sharpen his estimating skills, and then went to work for Long Painting Company for close to 28 years where he traveled to many western states doing computer chip plants, a cheese factory in New Mexico, and hotels and casino in Reno. Bill joined Scott Coatings in June of 2017, and has been very impressed with the company’s ambition and desire to grow into a premier painting contractor in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
