Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Life is a rollercoaster sometimes your up, sometimes your down, Moving to San Francisco was one of the best experiences of my life, I met my wife started my family and had my kids, but like many relationships, it did not work and we decided to separate and go our own ways, and also this was one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life to leave my kids. Definitely one of my biggest challenges,

As you know, we’re big fans of Modern Form Designs. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
When back from San Francisco, I went back to school for Architecture and now have my own Design Studio or the last 14 years where I do Residential and Commercial work. Most of my work is custom homes and home remodels and additions. My biggest project now is a custom 7800 sq.ft. home in La Jolla shores, behind the Aquarium, my biggest project to date, been working on this project for now two years and finally, we almost about to get it approved.

My designs are a bit modern, contemporary for new homes, always trying to incorporate nice unique features. To set it apart. When we work on existing homes, my main goal is to make the new addition to look as it has always been part of the home, sometimes I see homes and you can tell immediately that there was something done because it was design without taking into consideration the existing style of home, and it can look unpleasant to the eye.

Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I like to keep myself busy, I take my dog Bella to the park every morning a walk/run, like to go mountain biking, I also like to paddleboard with Bella, she loves sitting on the board and look at the water and people on the beach, she is very sweet.
