Profile | Matias Santini



Originally from Chile, I ‘ve  been living  in the US since 2001.

During the first years in the Bay area, I had to work on my language skills.  Since I didn’t speak English, I had to take English as Second Language classes at Diablo Valley College while I forced myself to work in an environment that required me to practice this new language.

Soon After I meet my Wife KC, from which we have two beautiful kids.

 I consider myself a fast learner with great instinct. During the first years in the Bay area, while I was working as a drafter for electric & architectural companies doing small jobs, I’ve  got certified as a graphic designer (Diablo Valley College), and a  entreprenurial business certification (Holly Names University).

From  January 2006 until December 2009 I worked for Paul Roberts & Partners, an Architectural company located in Vallejo which specializes in public & government  projects, including Child Care Centers, Community Colleges, Churches, offices, libraries, among others.  I started as a Cad Drafter, but soon I was promoted to Cad Manager/junior designer.

The latest Financial Depression in the US also affected me, when I was laid off in November 2009, time I used to take multiples exams to get certified, including AutoCad , Revit & LEED GA.

I am currently employeed at FCGA Architecture, Located in Danville, California, specializing in Commercial buildings.  I am also starting taking the ARE exams, since I meet all the IDP requirements.
