Principal / Indianapolis Studio Leader

An Architect and Principal at RATIO, Chris brings more than 15 years of design experience to the firm’s Indianapolis studio.

During a career that has taken him to Denver, Chicago and back home to Indianapolis, Chris has participated in the design of a variety of project types in markets including mixed-use, multifamily residential, healthcare, commercial, workplace, and education. He has been deeply involved in every aspect of the project lifecycle, from client development, to initial programming and concept design, through construction documents and construction administration.
