    Chris derives great satisfaction from developing innovative solutions to unique project challenges, striving to bring the client’s vision to fruition, whether that effort entails cantilevering entire buildings 50 feet or more, finely detailing canopies, or expressing an elegantly slender column. He feels a strong connection to his work, knowing that his efforts contribute to the long-term public benefit. Chris prides himself on crafting project-specific solutions that provide excellent structural performance while maximizing efficiency and constructability. Throughout Chris’s 10 years of structural design experience he has contributed incisive focus and enthusiasm to a wide array of successful projects, including new and existing buildings and bridges. Chris joined KPFF in 2010 and is highly knowledgeable on a variety of structural materials and systems, as well as seismic analysis techniques. Prior to joining KPFF, Chris practiced in the highly-seismic San Francisco Bay Area, where his passion for seismic design was reinforced by his personal experience in multiple earthquakes.
