As an amateur skateboarder, Ricardo always had an affinity for architecture and an appreciation for the building materials of the buildings he skated on. So when his endeavors to become a professional skateboarder fell through due to a torn ACL he decided to pursue architecture instead. Now as a practicing designer, Ricardo is currently working on his NCARB hours in order to take the architectural exams in the near future. He has a passion for sustainable design and would like to learn more about computer software including Python and Maya.
Ricardo’s creativity is driven from his artistic friends and the art community; as seeing other people’s innovations in various mediums is inspiring.
“I grew up around the art community and have been apart of it since I can remember. Seeing my friends doing what they do in the community and what they create fuels my creativity”.
