David Israelian is the co-founder and CTO of Painted Brain. He’s developed Painted Brain’s online face as well as many of its programs including the CodiePie Coding Workshop. He’s the CEO and founder of CodiePie, a tech company that specializes in CMS and Custom Plugin Development, as well as the MarQ Hub for cloud apps. His passion for social justice and innovation in technology has led him to bridge CodiePie and Painted Brain through the Painted Brain Academy, providing coding and computer literacy workshops, focused on strength development, purpose, and productivity as one sector of their supportive recovery program.
Painted Brain has operated on a service-oriented business model. For much of its history, the project ran with volunteer mental health consumers and social work interns under the supervision of the founding director Dave Leon, building an arts community. Through the internship, Painted Brain developed an effective model for art group interventions for psychiatric populations that have been shown to increase connection and trust and to decrease anxiety.
