Luis hails from Tampa, Florida where he received his Master’s of Architecture from the University of South Florida SACD. While in school, he was involved in drafting a redevelopment plan for the downtown area of Fort Myers. He is excited to grow with Studio VARA and exercise his creativity from the big ideas down to the small details in ways that enhance the human experience of the built environment.
When not working, Luis enjoys playing soccer and futsal, and cooling down from those sports by visiting San Francisco’s breweries. He can also be found performing classical violin music and indulging in his love of hip-hop and deep house music.
