Jose, born in Mexico and later immigrating to the U.S. at a young age, has developed a profound appreciation for the valuable lessons both countries have imparted. Growing up around residential construction sites, thanks to his father's business, he naturally cultivated an affinity for identifying the qualities that render houses visually appealing and emotionally inviting.
After originally pursuing a mechanical engineering degree, Jose realized his deep-seated desire for greater artistic expression and creativity and made the pivotal decision to switch to architecture. He enrolled at the University of Oklahoma, and the rest, as they say, is history. Throughout his time at OU, he developed an appreciation for the humanistic facet of architecture, embracing the idea of creating built environments that prioritize walkability and cater to the needs and desires of both humans and the natural world with which we coexist. Jose graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture with Distinction from OU.
In his free time, you can find Jose watching OU football, going on walks with his dog and girlfriend, and documenting the places he travels to with his camera.
