Christopher serves as a Managing Director and joined fundRISING in the summer of 2021 after working with the team on individual projects for the preceding two years. He is using a love for detail and organization to make life easier for clients. 


He has overseen nonprofit development departments and led all aspects of foundation, corporate, government and individual giving. Most recently, Christopher helped a DC-based nonprofit grow from a sub-$2 million budget, to a diversified $3 million+ budget with strategic fundraising planning. His consulting portfolio has included workforce development, human services, international development, universities and tech-centered corporate entities.


Christopher believes in the power of process, even for creative endeavors. Process can drive fundraising success, and ensures organizations have the support they need to fulfill their incredible missions.


Christopher holds a master’s in business administration from Quantic and received his bachelor’s degree in anthropology, history and classical civilizations from Indiana University. He can be found working remotely where you might see him on a hike or on his bike, exploring new places, or enjoying a book.
