When Chris started at Stantec almost 15 years ago, report maps were often created by photocopying United States Geological Survey topography maps and drawing a project boundary with a marker. Today, Chris leads a team of geospatial analysts who provide mapping and geospatial analysis through geographic information systems (GIS) to a wide variety projects, from natural resource inventories to pipeline risk assessments and federal permitting support.

Chris has helped pioneer the standards for GIS teams across Stantec and has recently gained recognition as a GIS national technical leader on our US Environmental Services team. He’s passionate about using GIS as a toolkit to guide the sustainable development of our critical infrastructure, and he works closely with many of our renewables and utility clients, developing new strategies and methods to achieve their goals through spatial analysis.

When not at work or spending time with his family, Chris is most likely running, biking, fishing, or kayaking around one of Madison’s lakes.
