    • Chris joined the firm in January 2008, continuing the growth of Confluence’s Kansas City practice. He brings over 20 years of solid urban design and planning experience to the firm and enjoys collaborating with multi-disciplinary teams. Chris continually seeks creative solutions and is adept in building consensus through community involvement. His work has included corridor planning and aesthetics, land use planning, urban design, and community revitalization.

      Chris has worked on behalf of municipalities as well as in private sector development, and he understands the need to balance vision and pragmatism to create successful, high-quality design implementation.  He also leads Core Design Development LLC, which serves in a master developer role for implementing the City of Mission’s “Form Based Code” for the 130-acre West Gateway Redevelopment District.

      Chris is a registered landscape architect in Missouri and Kansas, and has served as a design critic at Kansas State University, the University of Kansas, and UMKC. A Kansas City native, he enjoys spending quality time with his family and cheering on K-State sports (he bleeds purple).
