About Me

Here is a bit more about my story and experience. 

Hi, I’m Juan.

Originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, I have always had a passion for architecture and design. I came to the United States in 1997 and began to pursue that passion.

I studied Architecture and Environmental Design at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree. It was also in SLO that I met my wife, Candis, and we had our first of four children.

Over the next 14 years, I would go on to grow my skills and experience in a diverse variety of professional architectural environments across California. From an established boutique firm to a small startup to two different award-winning firms, I sharpened my design, management, and leadership skills.

My professional experience ranges from international (China & Dubai) and domestic custom residential design, to mixed-use properties, to resort projects. I am skilled in conveying my vision and direction in every phase of the design process, and I love working with a diverse team and clientelle.

I am currently living in Sacramento, California with my wife and four children.
