Venture principal

Chris is a principal at bp ventures, based in Houston, Texas. He focuses on production & operations and gas & low carbon investments. Chris is responsible for sourcing and executing investments, as well as supporting bp ventures’ portfolio companies through his board positions at Belmont Technologies and Satelytics. 


With a background in engineering and policy, Chris worked on Capitol Hill – exploring new ways to bring energy to market – before joining bp’s upstream organisation. 


Inspired by the belief that innovation will be vital to solving the climate crisis, and that viable business models exist outside of facilitating targeted advertisements, Chris decided to pursue a career at bp ventures. He holds a B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida and an M.S. in management science & engineering from Stanford University.
