A natural networker, Chris meets so many people in airports who connect him to potential projects that we’re considering installing a satellite desk for him at D/FW Airport.
Leading Norris Design’s Texas offices, Chris has a collaborative approach from concept to design development through final construction, creating landscape spaces that are both thoughtful and functional.
A Kansas City native who relocated to Austin in early 2016, Joe loves barbecue so much he owned and operated Woodyard BBQ, featured on the Food Network. He’s energized by a drive to learn something new with each new effort and make the most of every opportunity that a project presents. Since he made the move, he’s learned to spend every possible moment outdoors with his three sons – and that breakfast tacos aren’t just for breakfast.
Joe is adept at leading complex planning and design projects, balancing multiple disciplines, consultants and client requirements.
