Working in construction runs in my family – my dad is an industrial engineer, my uncles are residential contractors and my grandfather was a well-known architect in Peru – so from an early age, I have always known that I wanted to be involved in that field of work as well. I received my Bachelor of Architecture and Community Design from the University of San Francisco; but, while interning with a commercial GC, I decided to change paths and head towards construction project management. I started working at BCCI Construction as a project engineer in the Project Management Department and am currently working as a service project manager for the Field Operations Department managing multiple SF buildings for a very well-known tech company.
CREW SF Background:
I joined CREW in 2017 and immediately became involved with the on-going planning for that year’s Golf Tournament. In 2018, I was asked to be the Golf Tournament Chair and am reprising that role in 2019 for our July 22nd tournament at the Claremont Country Club in Oakland. Register today!
What do you like most about your job and/or industry?
I have always loved the whole construction process, from starting with a quick sketch of what the client wants to the first day of business (FDOB) and seeing how the client reacts to their new space. Every project is different and challenging in their own way, and I have learned something new about myself in every project. You also learn something new every day!
What advice do you want to give a new CREW SF member?
Getting involved in a committee is the best thing you can do. You meet some many different people and you’re exposed to certain things you never thought you’d do – like plan a golf tournament!
What has been the highlight during your membership with CREW SF?
Being the Golf Tournament Chair two years in a row, there’s a lot of planning that goes into it and I have met some amazing people who have helped immensely in the planning process to make it such a wonderful event. Also, I learned to golf!
