Chris is a Design Lead at ZURB who has a hard-working and simultaneously laid-back attitude, which fits in perfectly with the zaniness of the ZURB crew. He uses his wicked design skills to turn crappy user interfaces into something bigger, better, and stronger. He also writes mad Scss for Foundation.
Before coming to ZURB, Chris studied at California State University, Fresno, receiving his B.A. in art and graphic design.
Outside of work, you'll find Chris chilling with his awesome wife and crazy cat in Santa Cruz, where he’s lived for over two years now. Other than that his time is spent taking photos and perfecting his craft.

In this talk, we'll show why everyone sucks at giving feedback, looking at why we have a knee-jerk reaction at first. We'll talk about how to give and receive feedback well. We'll look at these three things: soliciting good feedback, taking feedback well and giving great feedback. By the end, you'll know how to use feedback to move forward and make everything you work on better.
In this talk, we'll run down how responsive design has changed the way we think about designing for multiple devices. We'll walk through code examples in the newest version of Foundation, Foundation 4, and discuss the new mobile-first approach we took in building the newest version of the framework.
