This BBC Friday long time BBC Regular Sid Mais tells his story of going from local artist to business entrepreneur.
Sid has started a new business, Horizon Home Inventory (horizonhomeinventory.com).
He’s just getting going. Come hear his story.
Sid Mais was known for years as one of Bainbridge Island’s fine artists, creating amazing works of etched glass. Sid has:
- Promoted no-tillage farming techniques to Iowa farmers in the 70s
- Started a screen printing business in Portland Oregon in the 80s
- Organized an Old Boy Rugby Tour to New Zealand in the 90s
- Was adopted by the happiest Jack Russell Terrier that ever lived
- Has been a Pacific Northwest resident since 1980 (no more Midwest winters!)
- Enjoyed a 10 Year run as an Etched Glass Artist on Bainbridge
- Attended his first BBC meeting in 2009, a BBC Founding Regular
“I’ve just launched Horizon Home Inventory,” writes Sid. “I record and organize the physical assets of your home or business, and then I archive it on DVD for you.” Contact info: [email protected] / 206.265.1988 / horizonhomeinventory.com
