What their colleagues say
“Cris was a pleasure to work with from day one. He demonstrated a commitment to getting work accomplished at a high level, displaying a passion for what he did and having fun at the same time. In a short time, Cris was able to go from the newbie to someone with a credible voice and opinion and ultimately helping to drive the launch of some of Nike's biggest campaigns to date.”
