Project Manager – Roca Verde Design Build

About Chris:

Chris moved from California to Arizona when he was 10 years old, calling Mesa his home for over 30 years. He started in the building industry as a teenager and has never looked back. He built his first custom home at the age of 19. He worked his way through school while building high-end custom homes, commercial, medical, and retail construction. Chris’s Custom projects have gained attention from Fox 10’s “Cool House” segment, and Channel 12 “Sunday Morning Walk Through”. His projects have also been awarded several “Best of Show” and “People’s Choice” awards. Along with high-end homes, Chris has extensive experience in doctor and dental suites where he incorporated that high end luxury experience.

After school, Chris started working for KB Home and quickly was managing 3 communities and 10 Superintendents, and 3 Customer Service Technicians. He used his time in the production market to learn and implement a fast-paced schedule and still produce a fully customized product without sacrificing quality. He moved into managing multi-family housing projects for KB Home, as well as land development. Chris became interested in Land development where he found an excitement in turning raw land into a new thriving community or Business complex. He has multiple experiences developing and building multi-family, and mixed-use buildings throughout Arizona.

When Chris is not working, you can find him coaching kids in after school sports, and volunteering for the Boy Scouts. He finds absolute happiness in being a husband and a Dad to his 11-year-old daughter. He loves to spend as much time with his family as possible. Chris has an almost unhealthy love for anything with a motor. He is easy to spot at many car events held throughout the year.
