PREVIOUS WORK EXPERIENCE
1990’s – 2000 Fantasy Finishes I opened a specialist paint contracting business in 1989. Our main business was re purposing existing kitchens, however companies like Slavin subcontracted their high-end work to my business. I enjoyed a successful decade of work. My company was the contractor appointed to complete Decorative work for the Rosebank Mall, Gallagher Estate, Rosebank Hyatt Hotel, Standard Bank Branches nationwide to mention a few. During this period, this small business worked on both commercial and residential projects, one of my most memorable being in East Africa for the Neptune Hotel Group.
