Meet your local, neighborhood experts.
Here's our team: ready to design the perfect look in new custom window coverings for you!
John is the proud owner of Budget Blinds of Kokomo and Lafayette and has been serving the area since 2005. John pretty much does it all, from consultations to installs. Prior to becoming a business owner he worked at DuPont Photomask here in Kokomo, but when the Kokomo plant was shut down, he had a decision to make. Instead of relocating his family, John took a brave step and opened a Budget Blinds franchise. While owning a business sometimes means putting in long hours, all of the great customers and new friends he makes along the way make it all worth it.
John’s youngest daughter, Jamie, works remotely from her home in Illinois, running our social media platforms and digital marketing. Working from home has been a blessing for Jamie, being able to chase her toddler around at the same time. In high school, she often worked as an assistant to her dad on installations and is glad to be able to once again work alongside him.
Corwin joined our team, bringing with him skills as an illustrator, designer, and teacher fluent in color theory and visual artistry. He graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute with a fine arts degree in illustration and design. He started with an internship for greeting card design at Hallmark Cards, and upon graduation became a sportswear illustrator for a silk screening company that was eventually bought out by Jostens and then Fruit of the Loom. Because of the buyouts and relocation of that company, Corwin started a career as a visual arts teacher. He taught middle school and high school for ten years, all while continuing to build his skills and starting a part time side business painting murals and faux finishes. He eventually left teaching and made his side gig a full-time business. He received a Certificate of Graduation from the Martin Alan Hirsch Decorative Finishes Studio in 2008 and continued formal training so he would never plateau in his abilities.
In the Spring of 2021, Corwin started training with Budget Blinds and has excelled as our Style and Design Consultant. Because of his experience as a business owner and with art/design, Corwin is excellent at enhancing the space and atmosphere of your home or business while prioritizing your customer experience as to provide you with the best window covering solution based on your home’s specific needs. And when he isn’t out doing in-home consultations for Budget Blinds, you will find him in his studio as the owner of The Painted Finish & Image or spending time with his family.
