Meet The Colorize Crew

Welcome to the Colorize Blog!

 Colorize is an independently owned Benjamin Moore paint store and authorized Festool dealer located in Clifton Park, NY.  We offer a wide range of quality products, superior focus on customer service, and a combined 55+ years of experience.  This means that Colorize will get you through any project large or small!

Through this blog we will share product and project information along with stories of our trials and triumphs. We hope you’ll find some entertainment and value in our efforts!

Mike Coffey

Mike grew up in the Capital NY Region. He spent nearly 20 years with a global paint company before co-founding Colorize. He enjoys spending time with friends and family, live music and sports. Although he loves to golf, we hesitate to call him a golfer.

Don Duttine

Donnie grew up in the Washington, DC area.   He spent over 20 years in the paint industry prior to co-founding Colorize in 2016. When he’s not at work he is spending time with his wife Jennifer. Much of this time is spent at sporting events for one of their 3 children, Kristie, Devin and Sarah. He also enjoys golfing, hiking and traveling to the newest microbrewery to try out new beers on tap.

Katie Coffey

Katie grew up in Rochester NY before graduating from SUNY Oswego with a Marketing degree. She spent the next 6 years working in the paint and construction industry in New York City. She moved Upstate in February with her husband, Joe, to join the Colorize team. Outside of selling paint her and Joe enjoy concerts, comedy shows and spending time with family and friends.

Linc Bigelow

Linc grew up in Vermont prior to spending the last 15 years living in Maine.  After a decade in the corporate paint world he moved his family to New York to join Colorize.  He spends his free time with his wife Kara and their son Jameson and enjoys music, sports, travel, and time with friends.
