After earning his undergraduate History degree from the University of California, Berkeley, Christopher moved to Los Angeles to pursue his interest in design and earn his Master of Architecture degree at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). With over 17 years of professional experience, he has led the design, technical detailing, and project management of complex cultural, institutional, and mixed-use building types. Christopher believes that the principles of design thinking should be integrated into every step of the process, from concept design to construction administration.
Previously, Christopher worked at KPMB Architects in Toronto, where he was Project Architect responsible for design and coordination of building envelopes for two residential tower blocks for the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan American Games Athletes’ Village. Other international projects include a multi-purpose hall in France, Sweden's Museum of World Culture, and design competitions completed with Brisac Gonzalez Architects in London. In the Bay Area, he has worked as Project Architect at EHDD Architecture where he was the designer of a research and lab facility at the iconic Monterey Bay Aquarium.
