About 

As a dynamic architect, Francisco enjoys working alongside clients and collaborators to develop elegant design solutions to challenging problems. A graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s School of Architecture, his career has taken him all over the United States and Puerto Rico working on projects serving civic, educational, commercial, healthcare, and residential markets. As a leader within the profession, he has dedicated his career to mentoring younger architects and serving others through various leadership positions in the American Institute of Architects at the state and local levels and, most recently, as adjunct faculty at Kean University's Michael Graves College.

Outside of work, he enjoys exploring the world with his camera, being in nature, training his young Boston Terrier, and helping his daughter grow into a brilliant human being.
