Chris joined ESa in 1999, after earning his Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Tennessee. As a Senior Project Manager, Chris takes a design concept and transforms it into the end product of contract documents. Chris defines his primary role as “coordinating the instructions to a giant, 3-D puzzle that you will be able to eventually walk inside.” His other responsibilities include design development, design team coordination and construction administration support. He also has extensive experience in working with state agencies, clients/key representatives and vendors during the construction process.
Chris is a member of the medical design team, and has been heavily involved in healthcare projects throughout the U.S.—including expansion and renovation projects for hospitals, emergency departments, medical office buildings and other medical facilities. As a member of the AIA and NCARB certified healthcare architect, he seeks to help “create an environment of healing for patients and their families.” Knowing he has a hand in helping to create spaces dedicated to medical treatment and healing is a source of great pride for him.
When not in the office, Chris enjoys golfing, traveling to new places, attending Nashville Symphony performances and supporting the Nashville Predators. Originally from Wilton, CT, Chris first attended New Jersey Institute of Technology before transferring to the University of Tennessee.
