Chris moved to Los Angeles in 1982, where he worked in the entertainment industry making models, and he began branching out into interior and decorative design. Soon, his line of decorative home accessories were sold in major museum and design stores, and featured in design books and magazines.
In 1999 Chris moved to New York, where he continued designing items like the Leaning and Pushing Bookends, Idyllic Table Garden, a Menorah, and a set of Invisible Games for Kikkerland Design, as well as creating limited edition fine pop-up books, which are collected by museums and universities worldwide.
