Chris finds himself standing at the intersection of urban design and transportation planning with a strong focus on creating successful streets and public spaces. His strengths are technical street design, construction administration and quality control.


Prior to studying planning, he gained experience in construction management, civil engineering, and environmental science.  This experience allows him to offers clients a broad range of skills to help ensure that all aspects of the street are considered during the design process.


In his spare time, Chris enjoys restoring his century-old house, road trips to explore and photograph the small towns and cities around New Jersey, and going to local punk shows and radio plays.
