With fourteen plus years of experience as a structural engineer, Christian has compiled an extensive portfolio of projects ranging from gut townhouse renovations to large span and high-rise structures. Most notably, his work at a Miami based engineering firm as project engineer on the development of the Marlins Stadium. His passion for design and overwhelming knowledge of structures is an invaluable asset for his clients. Christian’s formal education from the University of Miami was focused on architectural engineering, which explores not only the design applications of structural design, but integrates building construction and architecture throughout the program. His understanding of a structure’s composition and building components are beyond a standard practicing engineer, which is best evidenced through his high-standards of design and client deliverables.
In addition to Christian’s Principal role, he served as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at The City College of New York’s Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture from 2013 thru 2018. The curriculum he taught covered elementary structural analysis as well as two structures courses focused on the design of timber, masonry, and concrete structures. Through Christian’s work at CCNY, he is often asked to serve as a critic and faculty panel member for architectural student studio presentations. It is through academia that Christian’s most valuable asset is realized; the ability to teach a subject which has become an inherent part of his knowledge base.

Elise brings ten plus years as a marketing professional within the architecture, engineering, and construction industry to the MARTOS team. Having begun her career on the development side, working for a Florida based real estate/development firm, she understands the client point of view, which is a valued asset. She most recently served as the Director of Marketing and Communications at a New York based engineering and architecture firm for seven years. Her primary role as a marketer within a technical based industry has consistently been to effectively communicate a firm’s identity, services, and differentiators to a segmented design market. As a member of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) NY chapter, Elise has the qualities of a great marketer; intelligence, insight and tenacity.
Elise’s professional experience has been enhanced through formal education, as she most recently completed the Integrated Marketing Communication master’s degree program at Marist College. The primary focus of the curriculum is to improve how marketing professionals can develop strategic marketing plans to deliver a consistent message that reflects a brand’s values, services, and company mission across a variety of channels. Elise’s ability to apply such practices within the specialized design industry is a key asset in her role at MARTOS, a young and growing firm.
Education Texas A&M University Kingsville, BS, 2015 Civil Engineering
Chris joins the MARTOS team from his home state of Texas, with two plus years of engineering design experience. He has a strong knowledge base in the analysis of steel, concrete, and wood structures. His formal education from Texas A&M Kingsville was within the civil engineering department where there is a strong emphasis on structures.
Chris is affable, intelligent and will easily transition into his role as a MARTOS staff engineer. His professional trajectory is preparing him for project management and future licensing as a Professional Engineer.
Mike joined the MARTOS team in September of 2019. He has been able to quickly adapt to his role as a staff engineer where he has been actively performing structural analysis and calculations for a variety of project designs. Mike’s formal education was completed at Cornell University where he served as a teaching assistant as well as a participant in a fracture research group. The primary focus of the research was on coupled atomistic discrete dislocation (CADD) simulation development, an effort that seeks to couple continuum finite elements and atomistically modelled regions to more efficiently model crack propagation and mechanics.
Mike’s intelligence, focus, and ability to already understand various structural design concepts are welcomed assets for the MARTOS team. His professional trajectory is preparing him for project management and future licensing as a Professional Engineer.
