Christopher Kreps started out as an architecture major, but found that in order to really fulfill his curiosity about how structures work he’d have to become a mechanical engineer. As an engineer in training, he’s had a chance to fulfill that curiosity—and then some.

He works with computer-aided-design software such as Solidworks, Rhinoceros, AutoCAD, CATIA, 3ds Max, and SketchUp, among others. He has brought his experience to a number of projects, including a two-story waterfront residence in Sandpoint, Idaho, on the south end of a long bridge; a redesign of a high-tunnel greenhouse that could withstand the wind and snow in Buhl, Idaho; and even a mountable ammunition device.

Christopher “messes around” with electronic, robotic, and audio equipment in his spare time, but he’s also into more leisurely pursuits: He’s a home brewer.
