Chris connects clients with the decision makers in California government who will ultimately approve proposed land use and public contracting projects.

He holds himself to the highest standards of honesty and integrity because his reputation depends upon it.

Chris will appraise your proposal and uncover the benefits for your team and government officials while keeping realistic expectations.
