Born in Washington, D.C., Chris has lived the majority of his life in Texas as a transplanted Texan. Since the age of 9, Chris has aspired to practice architecture.  In 1999, he received his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Houston Gerald Hines College of Architecture and upon graduation, he began his internship with Houston architecture firm Hall Barnum Architects primarily working on liturgical and municipal projects.

In 2000, Chris took a position with Duncan & Miller Design, a renowned Dallas interior design firm which focuses on hospitality and resort design. Chris was involved in new construction and renovation projects in varying roles.  In 2002, Chris went to work with Swanson Heister Wilson Group (SHW Group, Inc.), a notable K-12 / Higher Educational architectural firm in Dallas. At SHW Group, Chris was involved in the design, documentation, specifications writing and project management for a wide array of projects ranging from high school football stadiums, natatoriums to educational buildings from kindergarten to higher education.  In 2005, Chris returned to Design Duncan Miller Ullmann (formerly Duncan & Miller Design) where he led large interior architecture projects in the U.S. and abroad.  In 2010, Chris went out on his own doing freelance work and in May 2012, formed CTS Design, LLC where he would continue work for interior designers, contractors and architects as a consultancy in addition to his own works. 

In the Fall 2012, Chris began working on projects for Bruce D. Nagel Architect and now in 2018, Chris is honored to become a partner with Bruce D. Nagel & Partners Architects.
