No location has been entered for this event.

A native of Austin, Texas, Chris attended Tulane from 2012 to 2017, when he graduated with degrees in architecture and political science. He served as political director of the Tulane College Democrats, on the leadership team of Divest Tulane, and as co-president of AIAS Tulane. His M.Arch thesis, ‘Building Up and Taking Down: a critical pedagogy for the deconstruction of the White supremacist imperialist patriarchy’, received the 2017 AIAS Graduate Research Honor Award.


Chris works to facilitate critical processes to question systems of social relations, particularly those upholding hierarchies of race, class, gender and sexual orientation as facilitator of JAWS 2. As a member of the Paper Monuments team, Chris works to uplift the stories of people, places, movements and events that make New Orleans. Through the Freedom School of Design, Chris conducts advocacy and co-design projects which aim to engage racialized cultural and political spaces through an antiracist, intersectionally feminist lens.


He is currently pursuing licensure as a designer with Wisznia Architecture+Development in New Orleans, LA.
