Having a painting business for 13 years now, it has been my privilege to work with some pretty solid guys.
Tristan worked with me in 2016. We clicked right away and laughed a lot. Turns out we have a lot of things in common. His first name and my middle name are the same. We both have the same favourite movie. We've both struggled with depression. And many other things. One thing I learned from T-Bone is that the nicest people can have the worst taste in music 🙉. But seriously, for such a young guy he sure has made a lot of wise decisions so far in his life. He has taught me the value of a positive attitude in the face of adversity, and the power of good habits...
I gave Tristan the nick-name T-Bone 'cause he is such a carnivore. Maybe its because i'm an aspiring vegetarian, but it struck me as odd one day when he pulled out 6 eggs for lunch. And a whole chicken. Is it ethical to make a meal out of an entire little chicken family?! Some painters load up on beer for the weekend, not this guy. You will find him in the meat department dropping $100 on grilling cuts.
After 5 years of painting, T-Bone decided to get into landscaping this year. So far he is loving it. Tristan's got a big heart and a bright future ahead of him.
