Chris spent his career helping groups of...

students, teachers, and athletes explore the Americas until he discovered Design Thinking in 2016 and decided to trade in his bug spray for sticky notes.

He now creates the time, space, and conditions for teams to problem-solve, innovate, implement, and learn together in a fun and engaging way. Chris believes organizations have all that they need to solve their own strategy, marketing, innovation, and organizational problems and his role is to help them discover and implement them through engaging and impactful workshops and events.  He is a community builder, facilitator, designer, and a ‘farmer of collaboration’ thanks to his natural tendency to explore, connect, and host experiences that help teams and companies come together and break through their challenges.


Chris has designed and facilitated transformative workshops, communities, and training that drive collaboration, cohesion, and innovation. Formerly with Voltage Control, he's worked with clients such as Dell, Northwest Mutual, Mars-Wrigley, Church & Dwight, Snap Financial, Alliant Insurance, and the FAI just to name a few.
