Growing up in Seattle, Chris’ character has been building since he was a teenager.
He worked his way through college as a carpenter.
He has extensive experience with lakeside, steep slope, and environmentally sensitive building sites. He has managed large scale residential and commercial projects in Seattle as well as Colorado, Alaska, Hawaii, and Japan.
Chris spent several summers as a climber and guide in Alaska, having climbed Denali (McKinley) twice, and summited it once, amongst other peaks in the Cascades, including Rainer multiple times.
Chris is an avid kayaker and wilderness river rafter, having been down the Grand Canyon over a dozen times in every type of boat possible. Chris is always looking forward to the next adventure.
He now spends time in Kirkland with his wife and kids who are in college.
