Fun Fact: When David was just a young kid, he wrote and sold customized cards and promotional material. Every one was signed on the back with his unique brand: A David Creation. His head has always been in the game!
David was raised in the business. His father and uncle founded and ran Chism Brothers Painting, a successful and well-respected San Diego painting company. This close, invested, inside perspective instilled in David a real appreciation for small businesses, as well as a passion for marketing, development, and helping them grow.
Over time, it became obvious that David was a skilled marketer. Paired with his love for all things tech-related, he worked hard to develop ways to make his father’s business, and then others in the contracting field, as efficient, productive, and profitable as possible.
What does David bring to the table?
- Industry insight and experience
- Knowledge of what’s working and what isn’t for contractors around the country
- David has been trained in interior design, graphic design, professional selling, public speaking, social media marketing, marketing management, and more
- Knowledge of cutting-edge tools and technology
As much as he loves work, David is most passionate about his family. He’s a father of seven (yes, seven! – 7th due in Sept 2017), and he and his wife Joli are deeply invested in their home schooled education. David also is involved in his local Presbyterian church serving on the building committee.
David loves grappling with problems of all kinds, finding creative solutions and ways to come out on top. That may be in part due to another passion of his: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He has attended a local studio for a number of years, working his way through the belts (slowly). It’s his new favorite outlet for R&R, and helps him stay sharp, focused, and fit. He also loves a good game of shoot’n hoops.
