What do you like most about being the President at CertaPro Painters Indianapolis?
Hands down the relationships that have grown. From our staff to our painters, customers, vendors and even the nonprofit organizations we’ve partnered with, the relationship growth has been amazing.

Internally, experiencing the passion, energy, problem solving and commitment that our teammates bring to this organization everyday makes my role extremely fulfilling.
Tell me about your background before coming to CertaPro Painters Indianapolis?
I’m a Hoosier transplant, having grown up in Adrian, MI. Following my 2008 graduation from Anderson University where I played soccer and studied business, I got married to my wife, Brienn and we settled here in the Hoosier state. After a couple years of corporate work, I was referred to a position here with CertaPro Painters from a friend who knew my passion for renovation/restoration work in March of 2010. From that point forward my passion only grew. Flash forward a few role changes, a rescued dog named Moby, four kids (two came at the same time… I highly recommend twins BTW), and over 10,000 home and business paint projects completed, I currently have the blessing and responsibility to serve the CertaPro Painters of Indianapolis team as President.
