Alex Houghton – Founder, Owner, Project Manager
“I’ve been a painting contractor since 2005. It started as a way to pay for college and study engineering. After three summers of happy customers and employees, I decided to paint full time and worked with some of Seattle’s most prestigious painting firms. In 2009, I decided to change course … see the world. I joined the Army and deployed to Korea—serving honorably in the 1st and the 38th Field Artillery Battalion. Upon completion of my enlistment, I took the discipline and hard work ingrained in me from the Army, and applied it to my painting business—launching Tera Painting. When I’m not painting or working with clients, I’m drilling at Ft. Lewis, tuning my motorcycle, or mountain biking down Tiger.”

“I started painting in 2006 as summer job. I continued to hone my painting skills while simultaneously going to college and climbing the ladder as a Operations Manager at multiple large parcel/freight companies in the Seattle area. In 2012, Alex called upon me to partner with him in creating a painting business – Tera Painting was born.”
