Founder and President
Growing up in Cary, IL, my first jobs were mowing lawns, shoveling driveways, and washing cars in the neighborhood. In high school, I was a painter for a summer and it stuck with me! I also worked on a farm, cleaned up a factory and managed a pizza joint while coaching kids in basketball, volleyball, and soccer on the weekends.
After getting my B.A. from the University of Iowa, I was a corporate accountant for Quality Custom Brokers in Elk Grove Village, then a public accountant at Burton Partners in Schaumburg. But the desk job just wasn’t fulfilling for me. I thought I had the know-how and drive to run a business and that business was painting. I founded Dynamic Colors, Inc., with Tim Sheehan in 2001. When we were considering a new home for Dynamic Colors, Evanston became home for me, too.
Now that I’ve been doing this for 16 years it has been a true joy to work with thousands of homeowners to help them revive their homes and, at times, even their spirits with the simple application of colors to transform their home. I take a lot of pride in the Awards we’ve won with our dedication at Dynamic Colors.
I’m completely passionate about my family (wife and two boys) and my business. Everything I do is for both. I also enjoy continuously learning about the business world, golf, movies, Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, Iowa football and basketball, and any activities my boys participate in.
Supporting my community is also very important. I’m a volunteer coach and ambassador for the First Tee of Greater Chicago. I also volunteer for The PGA Junior League of Chicago and support the YWCA Evanston.
Founder and Vice-President
I grew up in Barrington and Cary, IL, and went to junior college for two years. I worked all types of jobs before landing on painting — at first just painting for the summer, then taking it full time in 2001. I am so proud of where the company has come from and where it is going. Over the years I have learned so much about all aspects of painting, staining, restorations and even carpentry.
I am married for eight years with three wonderful girls. Surrounded in pink and love it. If I am not at work, then I am with my three princesses. They are what I live for and what drives me each and every day. We enjoy all sports, outdoors, hiking, camping and, above all, Disney World.
We started Dynamic Colors 20 years ago and I am very proud of what it’s become. The thing that I believe separates us from everyone else is our attention to detail and the comfort our clients can take in knowing they will get the job done to their satisfaction. I look forward to the future of Dynamic Colors and providing our clients with the quality they look for in every detail.
