Kris sees to it that A&E buildings go up exactly as designed. To make that happen, he answers contractors’ questions and helps solve their problems—at the same time, making perfectly sure their shop drawings match the originals. Kris has been honing his tough-love skills ever since getting a construction engineering degree in California and then moving back to Montana to join A&E. Not surprisingly for a troubleshooter, his favorite hobby is shooting things (i.e. hunting), but he also enjoys working on his family’s collection of muscle cars.
