He started here as an entry-level production designer and quickly grew through multiple senior-level and director roles within the company.

He has been a trusted consultant who I always rely on to provide a fresh, creative perspective to our unique business challenges.”

A few kind words from colleagues.
“Chris is a rare one—being both right and left-brained—honestly, I've never worked with a Creative Director with such a keen level of insight on project details and timing—it helped solidify a seamless creative process where nothing fell through the cracks. Chris’ reliability is unmatched and his responsiveness is always a beat ahead of what's anticipated. From soup-to-nuts branding projects to quick-turn, hair-on-fire requests, Chris always delivers.”
-Melanie Martin, Account & Project Supervisor at Bloom Communications
“Chris has all of the technical skills I would expect from a Creative Director, yes, but what I really admire about him are his intangibles: his authenticity and kindness when talking to clients; his ability to relate with his teammates; his detail-oriented nature (something I still think about to this day when I encounter a typo or an error in some creative work). I would eagerly recommend him to anybody looking to create or bolster their organizational branding.”
-Cydny Black, Marketing & PR Lead at The University of Texas at Austin
“Chris is a problem solver, positive thinker, and great listener. His calm demeanor and ability to put those around him at ease fosters an atmosphere that allows people to express their ideas without fear of judgment. He is a consummate professional—fair, humble, committed, full of integrity, and focused on what’s in the best interest of the company and project. He is a skilled designer that you can rely on wholeheartedly.”
