Raised in a middle class family, from his earliest years he learned the principles and values of honesty, trust, hard work, and responsibility. He studied at a night high school in order to help his parents with their small businesses. After graduating with honors he moved to the central valley to start his university studies. 

 

Christian is certified as a Construction Engineer from the Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica. He  also  graduated from the Masters degree program in Project Management from the Universidad para la Cooperación Internacional. Prior to contracting with Punta Dominical, a large development company in the Southern Pacific zone in 2007, Christian led the engineering department of a San José based construction company and was an associate engineer. His experience includes more than 50,000 m2 on design and technical direction in residential, commercial, industrial and tourist projects throughout the country.

Chris is a proud father of two beautiful and  intelligent young ladies.
