A 2007 graduate of the University of Texas-San Antonio, Luis holds a Master of Architecture degree with a concentration in advanced building design. Luis’ passion for community-driven architecture has been a common thread throughout his career, exemplified by his thesis project: plans for a multi-use urban community complex for the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, a multidisciplinary, non-profit arts organization dedicated to developing and promoting Latin-American and indigenous arts.
After graduation, Luis spent six years with San Antonio-based John Grable Architects working on both commercial and retail projects. These projects include, but are not limited to the new offices for the architectural firm, a rural community center, shooting range, and numerous private residential projects. During this time, Luis utilized his wealth of construction experience to hone his craft of architectural detailing on high-end projects.
In June 2012 Luis joined Dado Group as a project manager, where he collaborates on design and production and the creation of construction documents for residential design/build projects. His recent projects including construction documentation for the Granary Cue N’ Brew (San Antonio, TX), a private residence in Austin, and a variety of smaller residential projects throughout the city of San Antonio.
