CG industry veteran Christopher Nichols currently serves as Director of Chaos Group Labs. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from Colgate University majoring in Mathematics, Art and Art History, and a Masters in Architecture from Rice University.
Christopher’s deep understanding of both art and science has taken him on a wide and varied career path. He was hired by Gensler - the largest architecture firm in the world - to focus its CG visualization. He later applied his knowledge to long career in visual effects which includes movies such as Maleficent, Oblivion, and Tron: Legacy.
In his current role, Christopher finds interesting ways to bridge gaps between technical and creative CG problems in many industries, including VFX, architecture, and product and automotive design. He also serves as host of the popular CG Garage podcast—a few of which he’s recorded here at THU over the last few years.
