"From the extensive high-rise construction to probability of large earthquakes, San Francisco is a prime place to be inspired as a Structural Engineer. While staying in touch with modern building design to travelling the world, inspiration is often pulled from mentors on a daily basis."

Aaron's intrigue with the science behind building design has sparked a natural progression to becoming a Structural Engineer. Aaron enjoys working at PARADIGM for the diverse portfolio of work for a mid-sized firm and looks forward to working on the next innovative building design.
