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 children, and he and his wife Joli are deeply invested in their homeschool education. David also is involved in his local Presbyterian church serving on the building committee and as a home group leader.

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 (BJJ). He has attended a local studio for a number of years and currently holds the rank of purple belt. It’s his new favorite outlet for R&R, and helps him stay sharp, focused, and fit.

As of 2020, David has also become the President and CEO of his family’s painting business in San Diego: Chism Brothers Painting.

If you get into a conversation with David, coffee and craft beer seem to always slip into the dialogue.

When he has any extra free time, Dave also loves a good game of beach volleyball, yoga (new to this), spin classes, family walks and shoot’n hoops.

Preferred Partnerships

During COVID-19, I made some drastic changes to my business. As I write this, those changes are still ongoing. Pre-COVID, ADC provided all content writing services, social media and email marketing in-house. I now have outsourced all marketing services to my preferred partners. These guys and gals work under my supervision.

focus on the big picture, and we’ll orchestrate the team

We’ve been called marketing quarterbacks, and we’ve also been called orchestra conductors. There may not seem to be an immediate connection, but think of it this way: we step in, catch your vision and goals, then orchestrate the details (or run the plays). Every part and player is important, coming together into a unified whole working toward a specific goal.

Best of all? You’ll be fully in the loop, but not tangled up in the details. This ensures that you can focus on the big picture, your day-to-day operations, and business growth.
