Mike started painting in the early 1990s after traveling and working abroad. He’s worked on an organic dairy farm where he managed livestock and lent a hand in all phases of farming and has also dabbled in the construction and insurance industries during his career.


Mike formed Acorn Painting, LLC in 2014. The company, based in Bristol, Vermont, now employs a crew of full-time, year-round professional painters. Every team member earns competitive wages, paid vacation, generous benefits and educational opportunities.

Throughout his career, Mike has been committed to professional excellence, an honest work ethic, and friendly service. Those values still hold true, as witnessed by long-term employees, repeat clients, customer referrals and friendships made through the years.
