Chris came to Summerour in 2012 with a broad foundation in both commercial and residential projects, from large convention centers to discreet home renovations. After working for several prestigious commercial firms, he sought a more personal experience afforded by working with residential clients in his native Atlanta. His thoughtful approach to design and his facility for project management have combined to realize some of Summerour’s most bespoke hospitality work, notably for the Relais & Chateaux Blackberry Mountain campus, including Bramble Hall and the Lodge, as well as a major development for Brass Pro at Dogwood Canyon in Missouri.
A graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology, Chris went on to complete a Master’s Degree at Colombia University.

Together with his wife, Lisa, an interior designer, he has appointed their East Atlanta Tudor bungalow with intricate paneling and cabinetry.The Joneses are avid world travelers and have most recently explored Iceland, South Africa, Egypt and Jordon. His greatest passion however is for Ireland, specifically the breathtaking landscape of County Connemara, where he and Lisa imbibe history and nature and where Chris can indulge in his love of fly fishing.
