During his 22-year career, Chris has worked on projects encompassing all aspects of surface-water drainage design and analysis for both the private and public sectors. When land development was in vogue, Chris successfully completed projects for clients ranging from the individual homeowner wanting to construct on their own property to working with a multi-million-dollar, land-development companies, striving to enhance the urban fabric with a well-conceived Master Planned Communities. Having completed over 300 such projects within a variety of jurisdictions, Chris has never been one to shy away from the challenge of working in a new arena. Because Chris has developed his own residential development project, he has a unique perspective on what it is necessary to go from bare earth to viable development and the hurdles faced by homeowners and developers in doing so. This is not to say that Chris is less familiar with working in the public realm. For his public-sector clients, Chris has prepared Letters of Map Revision, completed Flood Insurance Studies, written technical policies, served as plan reviewer and investigated and mitigated drainage problems, and provided training to public sector employees. Chris understands that there is a real advantage to working in both the public and private arenas; having insight into one, helps to better achieve the goals of the other.

When not working, Chris is an officer for Knights of Columbus Weber Assembly, Chairman of the Diocese of Tucson Catholic Cemetery Board, volunteers at the Arizona VA House and plays softball and basketball on his wife’s work teams.
