A California transplant, an antiquarian, a sports-lover, a loving husband and a great father - there are many ways to describe Sam. Though he has many layers, he is also Shaker Painting's spotlight employee for this month.


He moved out to Colorado in 2008 from Los Angeles, California, and has not looked back because he absolutely loves it here.

His hobbies vary from bicycling, collecting beautiful antiques (like vintage paint items shown below), appreciating astronomy, to spending time with his family, going to concerts, sporting events, and comedy shows.

His most prized possession is a coin from 85-42 BC! It is said to have been inspired by a denarius issued by Marcus Junnius Brutus, who conspired against Caesar. A Thracian (Getic-Dacian) king, Coson (who was allied with Brutus), is said to have furnished the gold that Brutus used.

According to several Roman historians, the coin was theorized to have been struck between 44 and 42 BC, and they’ve implied the Coson/Brutus origin is accurate.

Attention to detail is crucial to a project manager’s job requirements, and this transfers over well from his hobbies and interests.

Sam’s favorite part of the day are his tranquil mornings, before his family – mostly his kids - wakes up, and he gets to spend time drinking coffee and organizing his to-do list prior to digging in. He is passionate for what he does in his free time and brings that same love and appreciation of high standards to work. Diligence is portrayed not just through résumés but through showing up and being ready to work no matter what is being thrown at you.

"I have been in the painting industry for over 15 years, mostly working with general contractors and new construction projects," he proudly says.

At Shaker Painting, Sam is one of the Project Managers. As a project manager, he is first and foremost responsible for quality assurance, safety implementation, scheduling, and communicating.

Sam works together with general contractors, subcontractors, and other team members. He plays a crucial role in nearly every project and makes sure things are done correctly and efficiently. Leading with confidence, he makes sure everyone around him stays up to date with what they must do, and he communicates up and down the ladder of whatever project he’s taken on with ease, grace, and professionalism.

His personality at work reflects what his favorite hero, Kobe Bryant, loved to advocate earnestly: "The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they do." That is exactly how he behaves on a day-to-day basis.

Everything. From Jason's first bid to the final coat of paint with [the project manager’s] crew, we were very pleased with the communication, the attention to detail and the care with which they protected the house, minimized the sanding dust and cleaned up after the fact carefully. The worry that we would have a major cleaning effort after the fact. We were able to clean and put back all the furniture, pictures and furnishings in less than a day.
Jim R Tyler
President
Their work was instrumental in achieving the desired end results. We highly recommend Shaker Painting.
CHRISTINA B.
HOA COMMUNITY MANAGER
The Board and I were very satisfied with the initial presentation provided when bidding on the work. We were also satisfied with the overall work completed. Jason (Project Manager) was wonderful to work with and handled all requests and questions professionally and promptly.
Larry Healy
Community Manager
From the RFP to the initial walk through – from the proposal acceptance to the planning session – from the first day of work through the final day – every person at Shaker was professional, thoughtful, friendly and helpful. The project was completed well within the anticipated time frame and at a very reasonable cost. During the quality control walkthrough at the end of the project no deficiencies were noted. Every member of the community had only praise for the excellent job Shaker did. It was the best painting project I have ever been involved in as a Community Association Manager.
Thomas Richard Cruz
Facilities Manager
It is my great pleasure to provide this letter of recommendation for Shaker Painting Inc. Shaker Painting recently completed a full exterior trim replacement and paint of our five-story building, Broadway Junction, at 1165 Broadway, Denver CO. The Shaker team conducted themselves with professionalism and performed in a manner that was the least disruptive to all parties affected by the work. Closing-off parking spaces, managing staging area(s) for materials and the overall safety for pedestrians were some of the challenges presented to Shaker. Not a single complaint was issued for the duration of the work. Communication was excellent as Shaker personnel were required to access the roof and maintain the security setup at the building. As we have worked with Shaker on previous projects, we will continue to work with Brent Rumpf, Ed Gonzales, Jason Moore, and the rest of the Shaker team on future projects and I would recommend the same to any property and/or property management organization.
Shirley Forbes
Community Manager
I think that the best part of the project was Jason Moore who was the project manager. He was always in communication and completely handled the whole project. He was extremely professional and we enjoyed working with him.
