Born and raised in San Diego, and after receiving his Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Aaron has continued making his way up the West Coast by settling in the Bay Area. As a young elementary schooler, Aaron decided that the best way to balance his artistic and mathematic interests was to become an architect and the idea stuck.
Throughout his travels in Japan and Korea and studies abroad through the heart of Europe, Aaron has seen firsthand how different cultures and people interact with their cities and buildings. He believes that architecture and the built environment are a great opportunity to gently push people and society in a positive direction. Every decision that an architect or planner makes, no matter how small, affects their clients and beyond.
Outside of the office, Aaron flip-flops between being a computer and keyboard nerd and runner and biker. Despite being from Southern California, his Northern California family has molded him into a Golden State Warriors and SF Giants fan.
- What other profession intrigues you?
- Being a chef would be interesting.
- I enjoy cooking; it’s like following the instructions for building an architectural model or managing a project except with a tastier medium.
