Chris finished his Bachelor of Architecture from University of Idaho in 1991 where his thesis was the first to be completed entirely in CAD. From there he worked as an intern for a small architecture firm working on small commercial and residential projects and assisted the company switching from hand drafting to CAD. This was followed by a couple years of concrete construction and further internship with a design build firm focusing on high-end residential as well as CAD and IT Manager. Chris then shifted out of architecture for a little over a year working as a computer hardware/software consultant. It was during this time in 1997 that he was exposed to his first “BIM” technology. This technology had by far the biggest impact on his career. In 1997, he founded Visual Motion, Inc. (now BIM6x) providing software solutions, business consulting, training, and outsourcing connections/services.
Chris has been fortunate to work in a variety of positions related to architecture, construction, and technology as well as a small business owner. This experience has enabled him to work with thousands of great designers, contractors, and engineers over the past 30 years. Also, this diverse experience is very beneficial whether he is working with the principal/owner, designer, intern, or IT staff. He believes work should be fun and enjoys helping clients to “create buildings better with BIM”.
