Having been blessed with incredibly dedicated teachers in design school in the states and abroad, to bosses who mentored and guided his career, Christopher recognizes and embraces sharing his experiences whether through being actively involved in his company’s internship program to being a founding member of the Educational Advisory Committee of the Art Institute Hollywood. Over the course of his 25 year career and technology changes, he expanded opportunities including an instructional on Construct-Ed, he does Webinars including with NKBA and is very proud to have been part of the creation of an educational badge program with NKBA.
Christopher is very honored the majority of the lectures he’s created qualify for CEU credits in many areas of the industry which has him traveling to many design chapters around the country.
