Oscar spent his childhood growing up around aviation and agriculture in the Rio Grande Valley. This experience, in part, shaped his belief that architecture is a system that seeks to resolve social issues by fusing diversity, technology, culture, and art for the benefit of the built and natural environments.
Oscar graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from The University of Texas at San Antonio and nominated for the 2015 Department of Architecture Award. He served as an Intern with the Harris County’s Engineering Department in Houston, Texas and also studied historic preservation with the Galveston Historical Foundation.
Oscar earned a Master of Architecture and a Healthcare Facilities Design Certificate from Texas Tech University and showcased his work for the 2017 Studio Excellence Exhibition in the College of Architecture. While pursuing his Masters, he served as a teaching assistant to undergraduate students.
Recognizing the importance of investing in social capital, Oscar has served as a mentor to students at all levels and encourages the pursuit of architecture as a profession.
When Oscar isn’t designing, he likes to spend his time outdoors, volunteering, seeking the best BBQ, experimenting with graphics/ drawing mediums, and exploring small towns in the great State of Texas.
