imageChris Daniel is the heart, soul and founder of our company. His diligence and talent in drafting and design led him, under the guidance of Caprock High legend Jess Roan, to win regional and state competitions, and to finally place second of the United States back in 1985.

After finishing school and 4 years of active duty in the United States Navy, Chris returned back to where his heart was. He worked as draftsman and designer in various places gaining enough experience and confidence to start his own company in January of 1997, American Traditions.

Chris' creativity, devotion, and good business sense, brought our company a long way from our first modest office, drawing on the board to the high tech computer aided drafting network he operates now. Chris brings good old fashioned business values into perfect unison with state of the art technology, which might just be the secret to our success.
