Washington Roebling was the chief engineer during the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, and his wife Emily was the chief field engineer for the last 10 years of its construction.

For years, Kriss has given private talks and tours of the Brooklyn Bridge to family and friends, and as word spread he started offering more events to the public.
