What brought you to architecture? 

From a young age I really enjoyed drawing cartoon characters. In third grade I was tested to join the gifted art program at school which I passed and was a part of the program through twelfth grade. Senior year in high school I knew I wanted to go to college but wasn’t too sure what I wanted to major in. I liked the idea of spatial art so I went for architecture.

Tell us a little known fact about you.

Cheesecake is my kryptonite. And, doctors told my mom that she would never be able to conceive a baby. A few years later I was born which is why my name is Jesus.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is…

“Do or do not, there is no try.” – Yoda

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be…

Indestructible digestion.
