Senior Associate / Designer
Growing up in Arlington, VA, Javier always had an eye for architecture and the arts. After graduating from high school, he considered continuing his studies at both the Art Institute in Philadelphia for graphic design as well as automotive engineering. However, architecture seemed the most glamorous so he earned his Bachelor’s degree at Catholic University of America.
Javier began working at Page during his final semester of college, which was his introduction to the world of embassy design. He was tapped to use his artistic skills for the renderings of these projects, recalling that his first significant one was the Islamabad New Embassy Compound. Another was the embassy in Amman, Jordan, because he was able to visit it in person after completion.
Javier explains his professional motivation, “Finding that happy medium between aesthetics and safety has always been a great challenge with these projects that I look forward to solving.“
He enjoys playing soccer and recruits co-workers for a team that was formed in 2011 with six Page employees. Whenever there is a Page sporting event or opportunity, Javier is probably there. He still paints in his free time and still leverages his engineering skills working on his motorcycle.
