His father a textile designer, Pao was exposed to design at an early age. His interest in both art and science led him to the field of architecture. He attended Tunghai University in Taiwan where many of the professors had degrees from Harvard, Yale or MIT. This inspired him to study architecture in the United States. As a Principal of the firm, Pao’s responsibilities include overseeing operations, production management, project management, project staffing and specification research, writing and supervision. He works closely with each Project Manager and team members to ensure quality control and maintain office standards.  With over 30 year’s experience in the industry he has learned to expect the unexpected and to appreciate simplicity. When not in the office, you may find him on a badminton court or just appreciating art and nature.
