Aloha, my name is Wayne Miyasato, estimator for JD Painting in our Honolulu office. I started with the company in June of 2001. My career in painting started back in 1976 when a friend asked me to work for him because he was starting a painting company. I started as apprentice, became a journeyman painter and eventually estimator. I have done a little of almost everything in the trade from working on repaints, new residential work, commercial projects, tenant improvement as a painter and now estimating them. With my experience in almost all types of painting I do a lot of budget pricing for projects also.
Seeing a project from drawing board to reality is something that really excites me and motivates me to look forward the next project, big or small. When you can see the completion of someone else’s dream or vision be turned into reality, it’s awesome feeling to be part of it. When I’m not a work, I’m usually helping out at church, setting up for Sunday services and attending bible studies at least once a week.
