Chris is a partner based in Seattle, specializing in experience and innovation. He focuses on digital transformation in financial services, with deep expertise in experience design and growth strategy.
He finds the best solutions at the intersection of simplicity, beauty and technology. Getting there requires absorbing lessons from unexpected places, whether that’s game design, a backpacking trip or a graphic novel. It also calls for occasional creative rebellion. His favorite quote comes from the late art critic Dave Hickey: “Know the moment when rules cease to liberate and begin to govern.”
Before joining Prophet, Chris worked at Deloitte Digital, leading experience design for Transamerica, UBS, New York Life, Ameriprise and Thrivent. He began his career at Organic, creating award-winning digital experiences for Bank of America and Merrill Lynch.
He earned his BFA in illustration from Syracuse University and an MFA in design and technology from Parsons School of Design. An avid New England Patriots fan, he’s also a lover of board games, mixology and his family.
