Chris joined the Security Signs team in January of 2000 as a painter and metal fabricator. With a background working with heavy structural steel, Chris was drawn to the work at Security Signs because it allowed him to peruse his passion-- and outstanding talent-- for artistic metal working.
Over the years, Chris has headed up some of Security Signs’ most complex and challenging projects. Some of these include the U.S. outdoor store, Portland Penny Diner and the Hollywood Theater. Chris’s vast knowledge and experience make him a valuable asset as Security Signs continues to grow.
In addition to his genuine love for metal work, Chris maintains that the key to his success has been the fortunate circumstance of being able to work for a company that recognizes his talents and commitment. He looks forward to the challenges presented each day, and strives to continue in helping Security Signs be a leader in the sign industry. "I have pride in my job,” Chris says, “because we have a great crew and produce a great product. At the end of the day, our work is glowing somewhere for all to see! I couldn't have fallen into a better career."
Chris started welding at an early age after being taught by his father. He instantly took to the craft and continues to do metal sculpture and wrought iron work at his home in Gladstone, Oregon. Even though metal work is his passion, he would be the first to say that his two best attributes are his children, Savannah and Cally. A sophomore and senior at Gladstone High school, they remain the source of his artistic inspiration.
