Current City: Miami, Fla.
Born in New York and raised in the Dominican Republic, Cris says she proudly represents her country and culture wherever she goes. At age nine, her family became aware of her design talents after she redecorated her parents’ bedroom. Cris later attended school in the Dominican Republic, where she received a bachelor's degree in architecture at Universidad UNIBE and has subsequently worked as an architecture assistant and a draftswoman. Despite a design career that includes full-home remodels and set design for music videos and TV shows, Cris says she considers herself "a rookie" since she’s only been working in the field for three years. She characterizes her style as "bold contemporary."
