Growing up Wesley often found himself helping his dad, a real-estate broker, set-up open houses around the Bay Area. This early exposure to a variety of building styles sparked Wesley’s interest in design and the architectural profession. After excelling in several high school design courses, Wesley earned his Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley, and also completed a career discovery program in architecture at Harvard University.
Wesley is highly engaged with the Bay Area’s architectural community, focusing on helping young designers transition from school to work, learn how to network, and navigate the constantly shifting field. Wesley acts as Chair for Bay Area Young Architects, the Emerging Professionals Committee of AIASF and serves on the AIASF Board of Directors. He is the recent recipient of the AIACC AEP Associate’s Award, the highest award given by the organization, recognizing commitment to the community and design industry.
Equally drawn to both the design and business aspects of architecture, Wesley plans to earn his MBA and lead business development efforts in the field.
