In 2016, Christopher was working alongside Velentium for a mutual client. During their collaboration, the skills and values of the people Christopher was working with moved him so much that he closed his own consultancy in Southern California and joined Velentium at their corporate headquarters in Katy, TX.
Of the three core values, the one that most resonates with Christopher is Honorable (“we do Right for Right’s sake”). In a world where most companies are only motivated by financial interest, Velentium routinely has moral discussions about the best approach for its clients, world, and employees. Every employee engages each project with the mindset that we are designing medical equipment for our loved ones.
This motivation became a reality for Christopher when his first grandchild was born prematurely, which did not allow his lungs to fully close. He was rushed to the NICU for treatment and during one of Christopher’s visits, Christopher noticed that a handful of the machines allowing his grandson to breath, including a high frequency ventilator, had been designed by Christopher himself.
