We paint outdated office, refurbish carts. If it needs reconditioning, we paint virtually anything from automotive to furnishings.

I supervise 2 other painters. Some other systems, like domestic life and the Shadow Lane school, have their own painters.

The Hours

We prefer to try to get in before the school wakes. In the summer season we work 5 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. because of the heat. In the winter it’s 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The cannon. (The Fremont Cannon is awarded to the school that is victorious in the yearly football video game pitting UNLV’s Rebels against UNR’s Wolf Load. Following the video game, the cannon is painted in the colors of the winning school.) We got to paint it red. It was one of the very first projects I worked on at UNLV

Concentrate on what you are giving the table and not on what’s already on it. Also, I think in team. I understand I would not be half of who I am without (fellow painters) Rick Agrellas and Casey Sierra. We’re a small group, however we load a punch. I tell my men, “We’re all we’ve got.”

Before UNLV

I was a painter in the union. I did a variety of tasks through the union. I have actually been a painter for about 15 years.

The length of time you have remained in Las Vegas

My whole life. I finished from VoTech (now known as Southeast Profession Technical Academy.)

First paying job you ever had

That was cutting yards when I had to do with 12. I think I charged $5 a lawn. I headed out and lined up the tasks myself. Exactly what I discovered was that if I didn’t have a backyard to cut, I didn’t have cash to spend. I mowed the yard in the house, too, but I didn’t make money for that.

It was intriguing living at my home. My mom is a carpenter. I would wake up and a wall would be missing out on. We did a great deal of remodeling.

Baron is a genuine go-getter. He exceeds and beyond the call of duty. Around campus, I have seen him offering individuals directions, picking up garbage, smiling and waving at visitors, students, and staff. He constantly has time for a quick chat between jobs and makes certain everyone he interacts with feels like they are essential and worth spending time paying attention to.

Throughout the flurry of activity leading up the Presidential Debate in October, Baron brightened up our red indication holders, fire hydrants, etc. If it was metal and paintable, Baron was out there taping off and brightening it with a brand-new coat of paint.

His positive attitude, natural leadership skills, can-do/will-do attitude are the perfect addition to the UNLV household.
