Chris had the opportunity early on to experience the wonders of the Texas Hill Country, to live there after graduating UT Austin, and now has the good fortune of being custodian of his ranch at the headwaters of Falls Creek in Llano County. Enabling nature to flourish within the crosshairs of suburban sprawl and giving children the chance to experience its magic is one of his passions. Chris is President and a principal of ICI, a Dallas based owner and manager of premium commercial and residential properties.
His wife Carole is a member of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Advisory Council and other garden clubs with a special interest in water conservation. They have two children and one grandchild.
