As the Food + Drink Publisher of Weldon Owen, I had the pleasure of working closely with Chris for over a decade, from 2000-2013. Together we produced hundreds of beautiful, full-color print projects of the highest quality. On many occasions, we faced tight deadlines and demanding clients. Chris never let me down. Not only did the finished books maintain our standards of excellence, Chris’s creativity, collaboration, and attention to detail at every stage of the process was invaluable. He tirelessly researched materials, helped to narrow down specifications, got sharp pricing, organized prepress materials, and sourced special papers and finishes for covers and jackets. He also created stand-out sales materials in a variety of formats. As importantly, Chris consistently offered excellent customer service, both externally to our clients and inwardly to the creatives and sales reps within our company. His good sense of humor pulled us through many complicated situations. I could not recommend a more talented, hard-working, resourceful production specialist.
