Once upon a time, back in 1993, I married the girl of my dreams, Pesi Helu.
I married into a great family! My brother-in-law, William Helu, and I discussed possibly opening a painting company together.
I had painted with Student Painters while attending the University of California at Davis and William had been painting for another company for 7 years.
In 1995, we joined forces and opened our very own High Sierra Painting & Decorating!
After the Great Recession, we were forced to close our doors. In 2011, PJ relocated to Austin, Texas, and William to Long Beach, California.
We always had the intention of reopening our painting company. After William moved back to Reno, our goal was accomplished, and we reopened as HSP Painting Company- myself in Austin, William in Reno! I now operate HSP in Austin with my daughter Emelia and son-in-law Mike joining the team. We love working with family!
William is in Reno with his sons-in-law Moriah and Darien on his team. We are proud to say that we are still family-owned and operated, and are still working diligently to provide the best experience a painting company can possibly provide.
