Arturo is originally from sunny Southern California, where he grew up working in construction with his father. He started general contracting after he received his Bachelor's degree in Interior design from Westwood College. Arturo also served as a building inspector for municipalities in Southern California. He performed inspections and plan reviews for commercial and residential projects.
Eventually, Arturo moved to Massachusetts, where he received his Master of Architecture degree from the Boston Architectural College. His professional experiences include the design of K-12 schools, multi-family, and commercial mixed-use projects.
After ten years in Massachusetts, Arturo and his wife decided they had enough of the cold. They moved with their two young children to Sarasota. Here, they spend their time outdoors, canoeing and fishing in the mangroves, or just laying out on the beach.
