An NC native, Christopher grew up in the small mountain town of Hendersonville until he attended UNC Charlotte’s College of Architecture. After working as a project manager and lead designer for other local firms, he joined RBA in 2012. He now leads our design efforts and brings immeasurable value, serving as principal of the firm.
His small-town approachability blended with a well-traveled refinement, influenced by time abroad, permeate his work. “A sense of place is important to me, whether working in a small town or along an urban street. While the scale and material palate may differ, the architecture that works within a small town is the same type of architecture that works in more metropolitan areas and each draw from one another.”
When he’s not in the office, Christopher can be found spending time and traveling with his wife, Ellen, playing a round of golf, or cheering on the Carolina Panthers.
