Roberto has always enjoyed designing and creating new and exciting things. Everything from designing the numerous bed rooms growing up, to making of model cars. His father is a carpenter and Roberto would go to numerous job sites throughout his childhood to help out and to learn the trade, it was then when Roberto realized that manual labor was not for him, that Roberto would be better off designing not constructing.
Roberto started out with hand drawings and reading blue prints, that his dad would show him. By the time high school came around Roberto was in a program at school known as Tech Prep, the program is designed to prepare you for the technical world. Roberto took 2 years of shop class and 2 years of CAD class and Roberto graduated high school with a license to be a CAD drafter. Right after graduation he went to one year of Architecture school at a local community college and transferred to Interior Design for the second year. That next year Roberto would then move to Orlando and transfer to IADT Orlando and it is there that he stayed and is now about to graduate with a Bachelor's in March 2011.
