Though born and raised in El Paso, Texas, César has lived in four different countries across three different continents so far in his life. Besides his obvious love for travelling and experiencing different cultures, César enjoys going on hikes and exploring the outdoors with his pup, Ando, uncoincidentally named after his favorite architect, Tadeo Ando.
As a designer, César enjoys buildings, classical to modern, that are well-incorporated and sensible to their surroundings and finds inspiration in the goal of designing more efficient cities. César earned his Bachelor of Architecture from Texas Tech and both his Master of Architecture and Urban Design from Washington University in St. Louis.
César ran the Chicago Marathon twice before actually moving to Chicago.
