“A chance encounter with an enlightened school counselor told me about the profession when I was 14. I’ve known since that point that I wanted to be a landscape architect,” Chris reminisces. Born in Gloucester, England, he has lived and worked in England, the Middle East, Hong Kong and has now happily lived in Vancouver for over 15 years.
Chris is the managing partner at PWL and leads large-scale master planning and construction projects, public realm plans, streetscapes, waterfront developments, multifamily residential landscapes, public parks, and greenways.
Between winning the “Best Dad Award” and being a closet accountant, Chris can be found painting and sketching. He has had pieces shown in art exhibits in Hong Kong and various juried shows locally. “I play the guitar badly,“ he adds, “and I love gardening, hiking, camping, fishing, and traveling.”
