Chris joined LDA after gaining valuable experience working on a diverse array of project types and sizes in Akron, OH. This allowed Chris to become involved with and gain experience in all phases of design and develop proficiency in multiple design software. Chris is a proud graduate of Kent State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design, at which he received a Masters in Architecture and was selected to represent the program in multiple design competitions.
