Dean grew up in rural Bucyrus, OH before attending The Ohio State University where he earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering.  While at Ohio State and going through the rigorous engineering program, Dean met Dave Payne with whom he developed a lifelong friendship.  After college Dean started his career as a quality and process engineer for 4 years until Dave called to recruit Dean into his family homebuilding business.  That was in 2002 and Dean has been building and renovating homes ever since.  Dean often refers to it as the second best decision he ever made (first being to marry his wife Lara).  Renovating became a passion as it combines his love of architecture and proportion with the desire to constantly improve things.  Since moving to Cleveland, Dean couldn’t even imagine any other city being home. 

Dean is also very active within the industry.  He was asked to join the HBA board of directors in 2015 and then was voted into the executive committee in 2017 of which he will be president in 2019.  

In his free time, Dean enjoys traveling to new places and spending time with his wife and three boys. He is an avid sports fan and can usually be found watching or playing football, basketball or baseball with the kids. When he isn’t on the go, he can be found at home creating new recipes in the kitchen or enjoying the outdoors.
