Chris Schwartz, the owner and operator of The Glass Guru of Denver North, CO has been in the glass business for most of his life. Chris grew up in the business, cutting his first piece of glass at the tender age of 5! His father began working for a large glass manufacturer in 1964, and by 1978 he owned the branch. Chris worked his way through college working for his father, and in 2002, he, along with his 3 older brothers, bought the business from their father.
Over the years, Chris has built up a diverse array of skills and experience in the glass industry, including experience in contract commercial glazing, residential glass and window replacement, shower doors, wall mirrors, table tops etc. He's even glazed over 60 pleasure yachts. He was an installer for 15 years and then a managing partner. Chris's B.S. in Art History has given him a unique design ability to blend function and aesthetics.
In 2013, with a strong desire to branch out, Chris made the decision to purchase his first location with The Glass Guru. When Chris found The Glass Guru, he was excited to blend years of glass industry experience, with the forward looking concepts of The Glass Guru. Lured by beautiful mountains, active lifestyle and amazing people, he moved his family from Wisconsin to Colorado to pursue that opportunity.
Chris's wife Erica spends most of her time raising their 4 children: Auna (at college), Sara, Megan and Billy. Erica has a degree in Interior Design and also likes to help out at the shop also.
