Director of Design & Concept Development
Chris enhances a multitude of design disciplines with a skill set immersed in architecture, interior design, graphic design, and hospitality operations. His design process, although focused on creating thoughtful and provocative environments, is broadened through his awareness of full service design. Chris' passion for hospitality developed early during both his graphic design and architecture degrees where he also worked as a barista, server and bartender. Hailing from the sun kissed beaches of Australia, Chris has spent the last 7 years designing hospitality experiences in NYC on both the client and consultant side of the table. Chris has worked for, and with, some of the industry's most decorated hospitality design firms and operators, finding his true passion blossoms brightest in highly collaborative, multidisciplinary teams.
