Chris is a Senior Design at KCCT. He supports KCCT's most challenging projects for both our domestic and international studios. Chris’s motivation lies in knowing that the buildings we create provide a significant level of protection for its inhabitants. Keeping people safe, throughout the globe.

Productivity is key while managing our most challenging projects. Chris mentions that his biggest productivity hack is to organize a list of everything that needs to get done for the day. “Have a large and daunting task you are avoiding? Split it up into a bunch of smaller tasks. This allows you to keep track of what needs to be done and provides you a sense of accomplishment when you cross items off the list,” Rose mentioned.

Originally from Philadelphia, Chris earned his Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Master of Architecture with a concentration in digital media from The Catholic University of America. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family.

What project are you most proud of at KCCT? Why?

I am proud of all the work I have done at KCCT, however, the project I am most proud of is Task 336. It is an operations center modernization for the Department of State. The client has been amenable to a high design aesthetic throughout the suite, which has allowed us to flex our creative muscles. Upon completion, the State Department will have a high-end space with modern capabilities that will enhance the American diplomatic mission.

What is your most-used productivity hack?

I like to organize a list of everything that needs to get done for the day. Have a large and daunting task you are avoiding? Split it up into a bunch of smaller tasks. This allows you to keep track of what needs to be done and provides you a sense of accomplishment when you cross items off the list. 

 

What do you like to do in your free time? Or hobbies?
