Attachments to Nigeria

Jan 15th, 2014

Has anyone noticed as we get older the time flies by more quickly? It seems like just a couple of weeks ago I was writing the last blog in the San Antonio Airport and in a blink of an eye its months later. Where does the time go? Happy New Year! My New Year’s resolution […]

I’ve Grown “Attached” to this Industry

Jul 17th, 2013

First, let me apologize for the large gap of time between now and my last blog. Fortunately, and unfortunately, I have been so busy working six to seven days a week I couldn’t find the time to sit down and write. I only hope things are as good for your business as they are for […]

A Very A-Peeling Proposition

Mar 20th, 2013

In the last blog I teased you with a mention of the “peel test” and I think it is important that we all get educated on this. On the other side of the pond in the United Kingdom the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) represents all companies relating to the glazing industry including window film (similar […]

Nigeria … Not Exactly Paradise

Jan 9th, 2013

Last month I mentioned a trip to Nigeria and thought you would be interested in hearing about it. Our U.K.-based company received a contract for a major government oil regulation headquarters located in Nigeria. Three towers of this complex were awarded to us for 7-mil security film on floors 2-11 and 12-mil on floors ground, […]

Have Tools Will Travel

Nov 8th, 2012

3 a.m. ... One row done, one to go. Add one gallon of Dunkin Donuts coffee  and one dozen donuts and we’re good to go.

I’m beginning to feel like this blog is becoming a travel article as my journeys continue. Since we last linked up I have been to New York, Nigeria and just got back from SEMA in Las Vegas. New York in September … I had secured a contract to a very popular TV show that tapes […]

Liquid Security Film?

Well after 66 days I made it back from London and the Olympic projects. It’s good to be home. I really enjoyed my time there and working closely with such a fine film manufacturer (3M) was rewarding. There were some major challenges to be sure but all went well in the end as we finished […]

Window Film Brings People Together

As I’m writing this I am on the Eurostar Train heading from London to Brussels Belgium. You may remember from last month’s blog that I was heading to London to help our company with several 2012 Olympic projects. While over here I got called to Brussels to assess 24,000 lineal meters of security film attachment […]

London Bound

May 10th, 2012

I have been very fortunate to do window film projects all over the United States and in different countries. Being with International Glass Solutions, I have done training and installations in the U.K., as well as installed film on the American Embassy in Brussels, Belgium. Seeing different parts of the world has always been on […]

Something to Sink My Teeth Into

Mar 29th, 2012

A funny thing happened at the dentist last month—you might get a kick out of this. I’ve been blessed with great teeth all my life but the inevitable happened on a recent checkup—a cracked tooth. Crown me! This was my first-ever crown and it was with a dentist I’ve never seen before. While he was […]

Deal Me In

Feb 16th, 2012

Since this is my first blog for Window Film magazine I thought a little background might be in order. I’ve been in the film industry for 13 years as an installer, dealer, trainer, on site foreman for large projects, janitor, chief cook and bottle washer. While I know how to tint cars and have done […]
