“We are the objects we surround ourselves with.” – Unknown
Ross comes to us with a bit of wanderlust. Originally from the central coast of California his interest in Architecture began at an early age by helping his father and brother build their family’s own workshop. It was in this workshop that he developed his fascination and passion for making.
In 2012 Ross received his Bachelor’s of Architecture degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, spending a semester abroad in Rome. Not knowing what was next, and not quite ready to grow up, he jumped on his bicycle for an 11-day 620-mile ride to the Mexican border. Ross now lives in Tijuana and is set (and excited!) to marry his fiance, Alma, in Taxco, Mexico this fall.
After a crazy day of running around the shop, working on shop drawings, or coordinating the next Basile project, you can find Ross practicing his Spanish with the guys on the shop floor or scouring the scrap materials bin for his next pet project.
Best part of being at BASILE
The fact that we are so close to our work and the craftsmen who produce it. We are able to design, iterate, and produce captivating work with extraordinary attention to detail.
