Hi, I’m Chris. As Senior Vice President of Experience Design, I’ve been responsible for Cantina’s design practice since its inception in 2008. My focus is plotting Cantina’s course toward a design-centered, human, experience-driven organization. With two decades of experience, I’m proud to have been a part of many of Cantina’s award-winning projects and some of Boston’s most recognizable brands, including Zipcar, Avid, LogMeIn, MIT, Rue La La, Harvard and Newport Folk Festival.

Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in”
Areas of Expertise & Interest:
UX strategy and design for industries like education, publishing, entertainment, consumer products, financial services, and healthcare.
Other Fun Facts:
I am fortunate for I have spent much time traveling slow and on the cheap, across the US and spots abroad. I like learning by observation, immersion and participation - design thinking at its root. When I’m not at work or learning in real time how to Dad, my mind wanders toward live music, woodwork and carpentry, riding snow or asphalt, or my next adventure.
