I got started in the wallpaper industry helping my brother-in-law in high school and have been installing for the last 35 years. I’ve had experience with pre-pasted, non-pasted, non-woven, 54” commercial vinyl- wood veneer and digital mural installs and everything in between. I joined NGPP in the mid 90s and have benefited from the growth of this organization, now WIA, through association with experienced and professional installers and Associate members.
