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 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. He currently is an instructor for youth BJJ.
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 to the dialogue.
When he has any extra free time, Dave also loves a good game of beach volleyball, family walks and shoot’n hoops.
Meet the Team
Cindy Brown, Office Bookkeeper
Cindy’s dream job as a child was to become a stand up comic… well, that didn’t happen! Cindy recently joined the ADC team as the new bookkeeper. After being an intern at the Department of Commerce, she started her career there upon completing her undergraduate accounting degree from Morgan State University. From there she moved into the private sector. She has worked in a variety of industries from medicine, network communications, a CPA firm, to most recently a landscaping company. While Cindy has worked in several different businesses over the years, her client’s needs have remained her focus.
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.
